What is Prayer?
November 1, 2007
Prayer is our direct line with heaven. Prayer allows us to talk to God! He wants us to communicate with Him, like a person-to-person phone call.
What Do I Say? Praying is like talking to your best friend!
- Ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins and make you new in Him! (Acts 3:19).
- Tell Him your needs! (1 Peter 5:7).
