God has given us His Holy Spirit to live inside of us and give power to our prayers. We can believe God will do what He says He will do. We must pray to ask God to forgive us and help us to be more like Jesus. We can pray at meal times and ask for God's blessings. He hears us when we tell Him about our needs and ask Him to comfort and care for us. He wants us to pray with grateful hearts, giving thanks to Him for who He is and what He has done for us! God will teach us how to listen for the answers to our prayers when we read His Word. He is always waiting for us to come and talk to Him. He is always listening and He cares about what we have to say.
