Radio host and pastor of In Touch Ministries in Atlanta
The best way to pray is consistently and confidently. A loving and omnipotent God hears the prayers of human beings asking for mercy and says, "Forgiven." We never need to fear His answer.
Jesus said, "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." This means that we can come to God with all our cries, pleas, pain, hurt and simple requests, and He will listen and respond. Now, we may not get the answer we wanted, but God is a caring Father who wants to provide all the perfect love and wisdom we're willing to receive. God wants us to talk to Him and He promises to answer us.
