What does it mean to pray well? I believe it means simply to be in conversation with God, regardless of what is said or how. When we pray out of authentic faith and open ourselves up to the Holy Spirit’s working in us, we can never say a wrong or bad prayer. And regardless of what we say, God has promised to listen and respond, perhaps not in ways we expect or want, but certainly in ways that guide us toward God’s desires for our lives. So let us pray! God really does want to hear from us.
