This is an overview of some foundational truths about prayer and communicating with God.
We learn to pray by praying.
Prayer is more caught than taught. We just get on our knees and do it. We learn repentance and worship the same way, by repenting and worshiping.
The Father-heart of God longs for us to know him and respond to him.
He pursues a loving relationship with us that is real and personal. If we could learn one thing, it should be who God is and who we are in Christ because of who he is. That is basically all we need to know. God will do the rest.
God is always at work around us, and we must always be alert to see where he is working.
We are constantly listening and watching and praying, and then we join him as he leads. This is the way to be always about our Father’s business, as we do what we see our Father doing and say what we hear our Father saying at every moment.
