The Beginner’s Guide: Communicating With God

We communicate with God through prayer, anywhere and anytime. We just have a conversation with Him.

I was told the best way to pray to God is on my knees. There’s nothing wrong with falling to our knees in humility when coming to God in prayer.

But a conversation with God can also be while you’re standing, or even when you’re sitting down.

What is prayer?

Prayer is simply a conversation with God. It’s not a formal need to recite a bunch of word conversation. Prayer is coming before our Father in Heaven and laying everything on our hearts down at His feet.

Praying to God is just being ourselves in a relationship and sharing what’s in our heart.

A misconception about prayer is that it’s a specific set of formal words. When we’re new to prayer, we may get embarrassed praying in front of others, since we stumble over what to say.

But as we read and study the Bible and learn who God is, our relationship with Him grows. And just like all relationships, conversation gets easier.

Realizing that prayer is a way to talk to God gave me the freedom to relax and rest in His arms. I do this by keeping in communion with Him through constant prayer, sitting, standing, or on my knees.

How to get started with prayer

Adding prayer to our lives has greater meaning when we see how it draws us closer to Jesus as we bring our pleas to God. As we read, study, and meditate on God’s word, conversation just comes naturally from gratitude for who He is and what He has done for us.

How should we pray according to Jesus?

Jesus gives us advice for prayer. In the Lord’s Prayer, He tells us to pray for things like forgiveness, guidance, and daily bread. He also tells us to pray for others, and to be respectful when we talk to God. Jesus’ advice is a significant starting point for anyone who wants to learn how to pray.

Tips for Success in prayer

We don’t want to pray with select words to show off like the pharisees did. We want to be specific with our prayers as we bring our petitions and pleas to God. Staying close to God in story and study will teach us who He is and in return will set us up for success as we naturally converse with our Father.
