How do I pray? Pray as if Jesus just turned up on your doorstep!! Pray as you would talk to him if you had just met him face to face! We tend to pray as if He was a big agony aunt in the sky, there to solve all our problems, hear our worries and give us what we need. However, I would hope if Jesus turned up on my doorstep I would start with praising Him, continue in thanking Him, then I would want to spend time listening to what He wanted to say to me and then just as He were walking out the door, if I were brave enough, I might just ask him for something.
