Do We Have To?

Pray continually or always be in spirit of prayer. Even some of us adults can find prayer to be boring. Maybe that’s because we don’t know what to say or don’t understand that prayer is a conversation with our Father.

Tell God all that is in your heart, as one unloads one’s heart, its pleasures and its pains, to a dear friend.

Tell Him your troubles, that he may comfort you.

Tell Him your joys, that He may sober them.

Tell Him your longings, that He may purify them.

Talk to Him your temptations, that He may shield you from them.

Show Him the wounds of your heart, that He may heal them.

If you thus pour out all your weaknesses, needs, troubles, there will be no lack of what to say.

Prayer is an intimate conversation with our God.
