Teacher, Although we make an effort to pray throughout our day, Speaking with Jesus through the Joy and the pain, sometimes it works better than others. What can we do so that we may experience more meaningful prayer more often?
Jesus wants us to pray. Jesus invites us to talk to Him. He has time for all our prayers and thoughts – none are too small or unimportant – all are significant to the One who became man, showed us the way, died for our sins and gifted everyone of us who believe the gift of Salvation.
We may choose to borrow “Ancient Practices” from LifeTreeCafe.com.
