Prayer Time

 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Luke 11:9

Prayer can be done any time and any place. We can pray out loud or silently to ourselves. We can pray when we are driving, walking or running. There are many opportunities to pray!

When we pray it is just our talking to God verbally or in thought. I talk to God the same way I talk to a good friend. Some days I am just sharing my day, other days I may be complaining. He is always there to listen to us. I have talked to God while driving in my car when I begin to think of someone who is heavy on my heart. I have talked to God when someone is talking to me and telling me something difficult so I will know how to respond. I have prayed in the middle of a crowd to myself and I have prayed many times alone. Any time is a perfect time to pray to God!

Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Father’s throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.
