We begin our prayers by addressing our Father in Heaven. We then tell Him about our days, what’s on our minds, what we are thankful for, and what we need from Him. When we ask God for things, we should do it with humble hearts. It is better to seek to know what God wants for us than it is to focus on what we want.
