What is prayer?

sunsetprayer

Prayer is how we speak with God. 
In simple terms, when we pray, we have a conversation with God. 
This conversation can be about anything. 

God wants us to share with Him all of the things that we are experiencing in our lives. 
He wants to hear about our fears, successes, sorrows, and even our anger and disappointments. 

God understands all of these emotions because He, Himself experienced them through His Son, Jesus Christ.
