"But verify God hath heard me; He hath attended to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, Which hath not turned away my prayer, nor His mercy from me!"
(Psalm 66:19-20 NKJV)
Our Awesome, infinite, complex, loving and righteous God will meet you where you are in your walk with Him. He can be so simple that a child of 6 years can understand Him or He can be so complex that you soon realize you will never know everything about Him. Most of us can only begin our conversation with Him where our knowledge of Him has led us. But we all need to talk with Him to understand Him as well as we can. Like all your friends and loved ones, be they neighbors or relatives, in order to know them you must talk to them. "My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; In the morning I will direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up". (Psalm 5:3 NKJV)
As with all conversations it may be simple or complex in nature, but you need to know you can ask Our Awesome God anything and He will have the answer. As you slowly feel your way into conversation with God you begin to feel more confident and aware that He is listening and understands. But God knows that you need to express it aloud; hearing yourself say it is important to your remembering.
Talking with Our Awesome God will never be boring! Tell Him how you feel. Start where you are comfortable and advance at your pace to a deeper knowledge and understanding of this powerful, eternal and all knowing God whom you can lean on. Go on, tell Him how you feel. God knows everything and loves you beyond any love we know or really understand. Think of that for a minute or two. What are you really waiting for? Begin your conversations now with God, the great "I AM"! Our Awesome God can and will do whatever is necessary (if anything is) because He has the power, love and mercy to do it. But He wants to hear you express your concerns and fears!
We (as a church) want all people in church, worshipping Our Awesome God with faith and obedience every Sunday.

"The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee... Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God."
(Psalms 20:1, 6-7 KJV)
When you pray from your heart to Our Awesome God it does something to you personally, no matter what you are praying. It gives you the opportunity to unburden your heart to someone who already knows your thoughts and burdens so God or Jesus Christ will not be shocked when you tell Him. He wants to take those burdens away from you anyway.
Tense Times are Times for Prayer! This is a fundamental and very important fact. Where do we turn for help? If it isn't the right place, if wrong there may not be any help. Do you remember how the Israelites were always getting in trouble with other nations and turning to Egypt for help? The Israelites were looking in the wrong place for help so they didn't find it.. "Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God." (Psalms 20:7 KJV) Prayers should be directed to Our Awesome God for the right answer and help from Him.
1). Prayer seeks an answer from God. Our prayers need to be detailed and specific with our expecting an answer.
2). Prayer requires all our focus and concentration. The tension and pressures that are around us when something unusual happens make it hard to complete our jobs and be productive. We need to focus on our prayers to Our Awesome God. So pray when you can focus and tell Him exactly what you want. He will give you what you need!
God will hear your prayer if you focus on Him and seek an answer to your problem. Tell Him the problem in detail, as you understand it. Allow Our Awesome God to use His "saving strength of his right hand" for your problems. It always helps when you attend a church that prays frequently and before and after each worship session. God wants your prayers!
