Talking with the Lord in Prayer
Prayer is conversation with the Lord, a conscious decision to talk with Him about what is on our minds and in our hearts. Prayer can lift our minds to consider the spiritual aspect of our lives, inviting the Lord to help us. We may not receive the answers we want or expect, but the Lord does respond to the prayers of our heart, and always by looking out for our eternal happiness. The very act of praying helps us shift our perspective. Problems—large and small—seem more manageable when we turn to the Lord.
