praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; (Ephesians 6:18)


Praying conversational prayer is perhaps the simplest and most common way of praying that people are familiar with. It is just talking to God, asking Him to move in the earth on behalf of others or for yourself. This is one way we can be “praying always” (Ephesians 6:18, Colossians 1:3). Hebrews 11:6 says God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Our time of prayer (which is never in vain) can transform an unfulfilled life to one of power and glory to impact nations. (Matthew 6:6, Isaiah 55)


Dear God, I am so blessed to be able to talk to you like a friend because that’s who you are—my Best Friend! Thank you for always being understanding and patient with me. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
