You should treat God just like your friend who knows everything about you. You can then count on your friend (God) all the time. Anytime you need Him, you can call and He won’t be upset with you. He is willing to listen to you and responds with love and concern all the time. The method of such calling your friend (God) is PRAYER. Rest assured that God is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all through the year.
Below are some beautiful quotes about the Prayer:
God looks not at the oratory of your prayers, how elegant they may be; nor at the geometry of your prayers, how long they may be; nor at the arithmetic of your prayers, how many they may; not at logic of your prayers, how methodical they may be; but the sincerity of them He looks at. -T. Brooks
Practice in life whatever you pray for, and God will give it to you more abundantly. -Pusey
We don't thank God enough for much that He has given us. Our prayers are too often the beggar's prayer, the prayer that asks for something. We offer too few prayers of thanksgiving and of praise. -Robert E. Woods, D.D.
If you would have God hear you when you pray, you must hear Him when He speaks. He stops His ears against the prayers of those who stop their ears against His laws. -unknown
In prayer it is better to have a heart without words, than words without a heart. -Bunyan
Never think that God's delays are God's denials. True prayer always receives what it asks, or something better. -Tryon Edwards
