The Bible tells us to pray without ceasing. In other words, all the time. So how can you really do that? Well, that depends on what prayer means to you. If you have to be on your knees, at church, in a special place, or special time, then you may need to redefine what prayer actually means.
Prayer is just talking to God. It’s communicating to Him from your heart. Yes, it’s possible to read prayers, but they only count as prayers when it means something to you. It has to be genuine.
Do you have to pray out loud? No. Do you have to be formal. No!
Talk to God. You know, like He’s the Person who loves you more than anyone else, like He’s your best friend, like He’s the One who takes care of you and blesses you beyond understanding. Have a conversation with Him. Tell Him what matters. Cry out. Tell Him your dreams, you needs, your fears.
Then listen. A conversation goes both ways. It’s not really a conversation if you do all the talking. Listen with your heart. Will it sound a lot like you talking back? Yes, because that’s the way you were wired to hear Him.
You can talk to God all day long. And you should. There’s a lot to talk about.
