“Ask, and it will be given to you. . . for everyone who asks receives.”
Matthew 7:7a, 8a (ESV)
It really is that simple, but religion has made it hard. It should be like a normal conversation – like you’re talking to your friend. I talk to God just like I talk to those with which I am in relationship. I don’t use “churchy” language. God isn’t impressed with my theological knowledge or ability to use “Thees” and “Thous” – pretentious nonsense. Nobody talks that way today. What makes you think God wants to hear it? Some don’t pray because they say they don’t know how. Just be yourself and open your heart to Him. That’s what it’s all about with Him anyway. He wants you to get to know Him and spend time talking to Him. He’s waiting on you right now.
