Okay, today we're starting off a new series that will consist of answers to the frequently asked questions burning away in the mind of most new Christians. We all have to start somewhere, right? So, come join in. If you have any questions that you'd like answers to, feel free to ask and I'll see if I can be of any help.
Today's F.A.Q is on prayer. Many new Christians ask how they should pray. It's definitely important, but first, I think we ought to examine what prayer is.
The simplest way of putting it is that prayer is a conversation with God. Now, let's take a second to consider that. A conversation. Not simply talking at God as though He were just some idea of a guy in the clouds, but talking with Him as though He is a real, living person. Because He is.
The best conversations are the ones in which both parties get to talk and get to know each other better. That is the purpose of prayer. Getting to know God(The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit) on a personal level.
Now, let's get to the how. In Matthew 6:5-13, we find the instructions and example of prayer given to us by Jesus Himself.
