Did you talk to the President, the Pope, the Prime Minister today?
Or, did you personally speak to the Creator in Heaven when you pray?
Did the Governor, the Mayor, the Head of the FBI invite you to chat?
Did anyone "special" look forward to hearing from you about this or that?
Why did Jesus invite YOU to pray
and tell you how and show you what to say?
To some people you may not rank high on their list as a friend,
but Jesus invites you to a love relationship that will not end!
Not only that, but you can talk to Him any hour of night or day,
And best of all, the Bible says He listens to what you say.
Of course, the key to expressing yourself to the LORD is honesty,
And yes, what's in your life, and in your heart He knows already.
"But if He already knows everything, then what's there for me to say?"
Well, expressing your love and concerns to Him is good to do every day.
Don't neglect this amazing privilege to pray, it helps you to grow!
