As He finished, one of His disciples came to Him and said,Luke 11:1 (NLT)
„Lord, teach us to pray…“
God hears everything and knows everything. And yet we talk to Him.
God speaks to us. Even if sometimes, we do not want to listen.
With this basic knowledge, we approach God in Jesus Christ and have a conversation with Him.
It is a conversation and not shouting (God is not deaf.).
It’s a conversation, not a wish list (God is not Santa Claus).
It’s a conversation and not a sermon for others around you.
It is a conversation and is not a magic spell to perform miracles (God does the miracles – the prayer itself has no power).
Let’s not make it complicated. We shall approach the Father like a child, and everything that springs from our purified heart shall be given to Him.
