My favorite place to pray is at McCarthy park or in my bathroom at home with the door closed each morning. It is so easy to talk and listen to God. I ask God what He wants me to do or say concerning whatever situation I am presently dealing with, and I ask God for help. Then I sit back and listen. ~ Bill Greguska

Now YOU GET BUSY with your list of prayers to God. Even if you have ten things you want God to help you with, that is a great start! Keeping a journal can be very helpful in recording your prayers and communication with God.

How To Pray? And Why It Is So Important To Do So?

If you have never prayed before, the best way to describe prayer is like talking to someone you can not see as someone on a cell phone. The purpose of prayer is to grow a relationship between you and God. It is your way of talking to God and asking for help in certain areas of your life, such as relationships, finances, health, wisdom, comfort, to name a few ways.
I will repeat that before one starts to pray. It is wise to give God some praise and thank Him for what He has done for you recently. After you are done praying to God, make sure you take a few moments to understand what God is trying to teach you.
Anyone who believes that God hears and answers prayers can learn to pray with minimal effort. Prayer is not meant to be something so very complicated that only a few select people can do. Still, rather it is intended for everyone to be able to communicate with our heavenly Father.
When you pray, do not only ask God to do things for you (He is not a magic genie). But when you pray, thank God for what He has already done for you and answered prayers in the past.  Try to pray and listen to God speak to you in His quiet voice with gentle nudges and your spirit’s prompting.
Psalm 86:6 Hear my prayer, Lord; listen to my cry for mercy.

I pray every night, sometimes long prayers about a lot of things and a lot of people, but I don’t talk about it or brag about it because that’s between God and me, and I’m no better than anybody else in God’s sight. ~ Peyton Manning
Matthew 6:9-13 “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,  your kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’

Prayer is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
