(#1) My First blog….
Hello! My name is faithful1 and I am a pre-teen girl who has always dreamed of having
a blog where I can share my faith in Jesus Christ! Today I am going to write about
something that some people think is very hard to do...praying. People think that it
is a big deal to pray and they think that you have to say something like; "Oh
Majestic King of the entire universe and Creator of the seas and skies! We thank Thee
for this abundant blessing of food..." I am not saying that it is bad to do that but
you don't have to do it so elegantly! Just talk to God! Like: "God, I need help! What
should I do about this situation that I am in? I need You to guide me in my day
today..." It's just as simple as that! God loves YOU and He wants you to talk to Him!
He loves you as if you were His own child! And if you are a Christian, you are! I am
not an expert at praying, I'm not one of those people who can get up on stage and
pray a prayer in front of a crowd (no matter how big or small)! I am a shy person who
just prays small--but meaningful--prayers! God says to "...pray in your closet...".
Now that doesn't mean that when you pray you have to go into your closet! I think
that it means that God doesn't want you to go into the middle of town and say "Look!
Look! I am a good person! I am praying and I want everyone to see it!" I think He
wants you to go into your house (like Daniel--the one who went into the lions den)
and pray to God and praise God! God loves you!
