Matthew 6:6 NLT But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.

This should go unsaid, but prayer is not optional. It’s actually a benefit for a believer. We don’t got to pray, we get to pray. Believers get the luxury to talk to The Creator about what’s going on in their lives, how to fix a problem, or just to say thank you. Prayer is truly amazing.

The enemy deceives people into thinking God’s not listening or makes them think they don’t have anything of value to say. That’s a lie. We don’t have to be religiously deep when we pray. We can casually talk to God as we drive, clean up, or work and He’s listening. Not only is He listening, but He responds too.

Like we have a conversation with our spouse or another family member, talk to God about anything you desire and expect a response. That’s prayer.
