How To Pray

Informal Prayer

Believers in Jesus Christ can pray with the knowledge that God knows their desires whether they say them out loud or only think them. You can therefore pour out your heart before him in whatever way you can best express yourself, knowing that it is not the quality of your prayer but the saving work of Jesus that makes your prayers acceptable to God.

Formal Prayer

Formal prayers can be helpful for you as they help you draw on the experience of others to find words to formulate your thoughts in difficult situations. Formal prayers also tend to broaden your perspective as they remind you of things for which you ought to pray which you might otherwise overlook or forget.
