We ARE to call on The LORD.

Many are not aware of the finesse of The Worg! Have/do you call out to The LORD?

Pray wherever you are, any time of day or night. While you might picture praying as kneeling with your hands folded, there’s no certain position you have to be in to pray. You can pray while you’re driving, walking, cooking, or anything else you’re doing. Remember, God is everywhere, and He knows your thoughts, so He will hear your prayer no matter what.

  • It can be helpful to set aside a certain time of day for prayer, but you can—and should—also pray spontaneously throughout your day.
  • To feel closer to God, try opening your prayer by addressing Him directly. Use a name that feels personal to you while being true to your faith, like “Father,” “Lord,” “Jehovah”

2. Use prayer to express any of your thoughts and emotions. Think of God as a Loving, infinitely wise parent. You can talk to Him about anything, whether it’s something you’re going through at work or school, a medical issue you’re concerned about, or even just a quick prayer to say “Thank you” when something good happens.

  • Your prayers don’t necessarily have to be elaborate. Just tell God what’s on your mind. For instance, if you’re about to head out on a trip, you might simply pray, “God, please keep us safe.”
  • You might also pray for things like strength, wisdom, peace, or forgiveness.

3. Set aside a few minutes each day to dedicate to prayer. Since prayer brings you closer to God, you can help build a deeper relationship with Him by carving out a set time every day to talk to Him. This can be any time that works for you, whether it’s in the morning, on your daily commute, or at night before bed. It doesn’t have to be the only time of day you pray, but you may find that you’re able to pray more consistently and with more focus during this time.

  • It may help you get in the right mindset if you create some sort of routine during your prayer time, like lighting a candle, listening to hymns or uplifting music.
  • If you have something that’s heavy or your heart, you might strengthen your prayers through fasting, which means to avoid any food or drinks other than water. However, since it can be dangerous to skip a meal, it’s best to talk to a trusted spiritual counselor about how to fast in a safe, healthy, and spiritual way.

4. Keep a prayer journal if you enjoy writing. Sometimes it can be hard to keep track of your prayer requests in your head. To help combat that, try writing down your prayers each day during your normal time of prayer. Over time, you’ll be able to read back through your prayer journal and see how God has moved in your life.

  • You can write them in a simple list, if you’d like, or you can write out longer prayers to God in letter form.
  • If you feel that you express yourself better through writing than words, you may find that keeping a prayer journal will help you feel closer to God.

Pointers:

1. Pay attention to a feeling of peace and comfort after praying. You might not be able to hear God’s voice outright, but you can often feel His presence in your life. If you’re feeling upset or stressed out, try praying about the problem. Often, just turning to God will help you feel reassured.

  • In the Bible, this is described in Philippians 4:7 as “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding

2. Read the holy texts for your faith to get inspired. Most religions have some sort of holy book that describes their take on God. When you read your religion’s holy text, you may find that the words help you find insight and guidance into your own life, which may help you feel closer to God.

  • For example, it follows in Christianity, you would read The Bible.
  • As you read, listen for a call to pay attention to a certain passage or verse. Let it speak to your heart—this may be God sending you personalized instruction or comfort.

3. Read the holy texts in The Bible to get inspired. The Word describes our take on God. When you read The Word – The holy text, you may find that the words help you find insight and guidance into your own life/situation which may help you feel closer to God.

4. Meditate to feel closer to God. While traditional meditation focuses mostly on clearing your mind, spiritual meditation involves filling your mind with the contemplation of God. One way to do this is to focus on a passage from God’s word, reading it over and over while trying to apply the meaning to your own life.

  • Each day, spend about 5-10 minutes where you sit quietly and reflect on God’s Love, the blessings in your life, or even the way His beauty is reflected in nature.
