I’m going to be starting a new series on the blog titled “Dear God”s
Basically, a couple of contributors are going to be sharing heartfelt letters written to God here.
Why are we doing this?
There is something about our mindset on prayer. A lot of people feel like if you’re going to pray to God, you have to obey a lot of protocol, and use a lot of very official and formal words. We approach prayer and talking to God like we’re speaking to our President instead of to our best friend. But God really is our Friend. He’s our loving Father and so He wants us to speak to Him in that accord.
When you write letters to God, it personalizes everything. Now you’re writing to your Loving Father, to your Best Friend. The words flow out. Sometimes you find that you cannot stop writing.
This is the point of the Dear God series.
Because we are tired of prayers that are only “Forgive me God, I ask you for *insert your latest want here* God, Thank you God.
We we want to go from that to “Dear God, I’ve had an awesome day today. I even met a new friend today, I hope she turns out to be a great person… (and it goes on)
We want to have a REAL conversation. A MEANINGFUL conversation. An INSIGHTFUL conversation with our Father.
It is my prayer that God uses this to teach us how to communicate effectively with Him in Jesus name, Amen!
