  • Sometimes I recite mantras or invocations, or formal prayers. Other times I just speak honestly and from my heart.

  • It doesnt matter....the spirit intercedes for us and he hears what our heart says....not our minds....He knows what we need before we even say it anyways.... :)

  • Good question...Here's some steps that I hope helps.

    Step 1: Acknowledge God as your heavenly Father.
    Step 2: Praise God for who He is and what He has done.
    Step 3: Choose one of God’s names, attributes, or characteristics and thank Him for being that to you.
    Step 4. Present your day to the Lord.
    Step 5. Present your body to the Lord (Lord, I present my body to You this day as a living sarifice and ask you to help me be a good steward of this temple of Your Spirit)
    Step 6: Confess your sins before God and ask Him to help you live His way.
    Step 7: Ask God to help you speak only words that bring life.
    Step 8: Ask God for what you need
    Step 9: Pray for God’s will in your life.
    Step 10: Pray for other people.

  • I just talk to God like you would a friend. I don't exactly open or close....sometimes I say Hey Dad at the beginnning. He isn't some overbearing Spirit...He wants you to let Him in to your life, and to treat Him like your best friend.
