This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. - 1 John 5:14 (NIV)

Last year our church welcomed a new pastor. I was immediately struck by her approach to the morning prayer. She started by saying, “Good morning, Lord.” Then she continued her conversation with God.

Her way of praying made me think about prayer in general and how we as Christians communicate...

Today's Prayer
Good morning, Lord. I have much to share with you. Thank you for this time together. Amen.
