Most of us don’t pray. Or at least not aloud on a daily basis. It’s hard. It may seem funny. Does God really hear me, -or- am I just talking to myself?
And yet, try talking to yourself! Start with the word God, and pour out your hopes, sorrows, dreams, and thanks. Pour out whatever you feel in the moment. And then say Amen. See what happens. See if God hears you and what’s up with your life.
Because God cares; the one who created all things loves you –and- hears your stuff, and responds to your stuff. So give it a go. Say a prayer. Right now; for a friend, or a loved one, or yourself. And see how it all goes.
