God, the Creator of the entire universe. God, the Creator of earth and everything upon it. God, your Heavenly Father designed and planned. God created everything that would be needed by His created people. He created man in His image. So that He could love and be loved. God created all that is wonderful and amazing in this world. So that we could freely love Him. So that of our own free will could praise, worship and have fellowship with Him. Be in a relationship with God, Son and Holy Spirit.

What a wonder this is. What a miracle of love beyond our understanding.

That God, the Creator produced all that there is. For one purpose. To have a relationship with us. His children. God has no needs. He created us from His overflowing love. So that you could share His love. Form a relationship with Him. Be His child. God is your Heavenly Father.

Your life’s passion is to build a relationship with God your Father. You have found from God’s Word how to build this relationship with Him. What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also;” (1 Corinthians 14:15). You strive every day to get closer to God. You search His Word for guidance. When you cannot find the words to say you turn to God’s Holy Spirit to say the words for you.

Jesus taught by example.

Jesus prayed early in the morning.

Jesus prayed at night.

Jesus prayed before and after the great events of His life.

Jesus prayed when His life was unusually busy.

Jesus prayed!

Jesus prayed to His Father often. This is a shining example for you. For me, for all His followers. God created you to be His companion. Companions communicate with each other. How do you communicate with the One who loves you so? God does not leave you alone in this quest. He is there ready to help you. In His Word are many pearls of wisdom. Many lessons from others who love and worship God.

The Book of Psalms for example includes many prayers. Prayers of thanksgiving and prayers of supplication.

How do you speak to God your loving Father? Through prayer. Spending time in solitude pouring out your heart to Him. Expressing your sincere gratitude and thankfulness for all He has given you. Do not be apprehensive or shy when asking for the things you need. He is your Father. He loves you. He wants what is the very best for you.

God’s Word has oh! so much to say about prayer!

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us — whatever we ask — we know that we have what we asked of Him. 1 John 5:14

The more you grow to know your Father in Heaven. The more confident you will be in what His will is for you. Your prayers will be tailored not out of selfish motives. But, out of your sincere and genuine love for God.

You will constantly be aware of Jesus’ role in your access to God. Give thanks to Him also.

Your life has its ups and downs. Days of sheer wonder. Days of deep despair. God is there. God is always there. God is present and intimately involved in every second. Every detail of who you are. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9) God is here with you now as you read these words I have written lovingly to you. He is with you when you sit quietly and thoughtfully in prayer to Him your Father.

God cannot be anything but Himself. He cannot be anything but faithful to the promises made to you through His Word. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18) When you are sad and all seems lost. Turn to your Father in prayer. He is there listening. His love is unfailing. It is love unceasing. He will wrap you in His arms and comfort you.

God Almighty loves you so. He desires communication with you constantly, consistently. There are different ways to express your deep love for God. Prayer is combined with praise and worship. Memorized prayer, such as the Lord’s Prayer and the 23rd Psalm. Journal thoughts that capture special moments in your life of wonders performed by God. Silent and sacred moments spent in God’s Holy presence. Or, and this is my favourite. Your heart poured out through song.

All these ways of showing God just how much you love Him. How thankful you are to be His child. To be loved by Him. You have realized that is not what you say. Or how you say it. It is the love you show. The intent behind the message grabs God’s attention.

Another miracle. Another wonder! You can speak to God anytime — anywhere. When you cannot find the words to say. God’s Holy Spirit speaks on your behalf.

Communication is a two-way street. God speaks to us through our lives when we are tuned in to hear Him. His soft voice speaks to your heart when you obey His commands and follow His ways. When you are at peace and feel you truly have made the right choices in your life. This is God speaking to you.

By searching His Word daily we hear His voice and learn from Him. He speaks to our hearts when we pray to Him asking Him for guidance when we open our Bible. I find the verses and chapters I need. God’s Word is a living and active testament of all He wants to teach and show you. His Word will speak to you as you listen prayerfully for guidance and love. For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)

God’s Holy Spirit works alongside you as you read His Word. His Spirit reveals your growth in fellowship with God. God’s Word is amazing and filled with wonders that never end. Each day gives something new to study and ponder on. His Word works in your heart as no other book.

Do you yearn for companionship with God your Heavenly Father? Do you at rising, each day give thanks to Him. For the new day and all that it brings? At the close of each day do you thank God your Father for the Blessings He gave you?

You are His beloved child. He created the entire universe. The earth and all that is in it. So that you, I and all His created people can worship, praise and have fellowship with Him.

He provided you with His Word. To search and meditate on each day. To learn from. To hear Him speak. His Word is active and alive and is available to you.

God, your Heavenly Father is always there for you. When you sit quietly in His presence and pour out your heart to Him.

Jesus gave you access to His Father through Salvation.

God your Heavenly Father wants to be your companion and bless you through your prayers.

Remind yourself always, That He is your God. He is with you. He is a powerful deliverer.

God loves you and He always will!
