I used to think prayer was hard. It only counted, I thought, if I spent, oh, a half hour or more on my knees. It had to be focused, orderly and systematic. And, again, the longer the better.
Boy was I wrong! Prayer is simply conversation with God.
It’s asking Him to meet your need or someone else’s.
It’s praising Him and thanking Him.
It’s about committing things to Him and consecrating things to Him.
It’s repenting our sins for forgiveness.
We need to pray about everything and anything.
When you pray, you are speaking your heart to God and he hears you.
Here are seven simple prayers, with accompanying scripture references, to show that you’re in good company in praying each one:
1) Here I am. (Isaiah 6:8)
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Samuel, and Isaiah are all recorded as having prayed the “Here I am” prayer. It works best first thing in the morning, a way of reporting for duty and being “present” to God.
