Pray with Boundless Confidence & Joyous Certainty

Many of us may think prayer is, "complicated". We hear people pray who use fancy words, lots of words, "holy-sounding" words and we think it is just too complicated for us to pray, and while we may want to pray, we find ourselves praying infrequently - and feeling terribly guilty about this.

But prayer is not complicated; it is talking with God and we are able to talk with Him the same way we talk with the people we know. As Dietrich Bonhoeffer said; "It matters little . . . how many words we use." Just talk with God. Tell Him the things on your heart. Talk with Him about your concerns for the ones you love. Remember; "What matters is the faith which lays hold on God, knowing He knows our needs before we even ask Him."

Pray with, "boundless confidence and joyous certainty" - God is listening and He is so happy when we talk with Him.
