The Lord Loves to hear our prayer. Within our daily lives, wherever we can, it is good to always keep open a line of communication to Him. When many of us were young, prayers may have been simply things you said before bed or maybe before a meal. Whilst there is nothing wrong with this, personally I would encourage all followers of Christ to do it much more regularly, in ones daily activities. They need not be long prayers, simply only short or brief lines addressed as to ones friend, in sharing ones thoughts and feelings, in asking for guidance as regularly as possible. In this, in regular communion with God, may we improve our ability to listen and to hear when God speaks to us.
And we pray:
Father, I thank You for hearing my prayers, no matter day or night. I thank You for being by my side in times of crisis and hurt, as well as joy and laughter. Continue to be by my side Lord, as I move through this world a disciple of Your name and truth. Let me never stray from You, but always keep open a line of communion and communication, eager to hear Your wisdom, as I am always eager to rejoice in Your name, Amen.
