This week in middle school we began a new series called Real Talk. This new series is on prayer and we are looking at some of Jesus’ teachings on prayer. This week we looked at Matthew 6:5-6. The idea of prayer is not to be noticed and applauded by man. Our prayer life is a conversation with God. It is real talk with a real God. We went through three ways to help us as we pray. First we can talk real. Prayer is not about lots of words or coming up with fancy words. Instead we can focus on being us, the unique and beautiful creation God has created us to be. Second, we can talk honest. God knows all things, and we can go to Him knowing He is always here even when we are a hot mess. And finally, we can talk regularly. Again, God is always with us and our prayer life can be constant as we go through our days. There is not a time or place for prayer.
