People make prayer so complicated. It doesn’t need to be. 99% of all prayers ca be simplified down to four phrases.
Jesus you’re awesome.
That’s it, really that’s all there is to it. There’s no specific technique to praying, it’s a conversation not a ritual. That last one is especially important, think of this- if you went to your friend’s and talked from the moment you got there to the moment you left and never let them say anything it wouldn’t be a conversation or a friendship.
If you talk to God and listen to God, that’s prayer.
