God wants me to pray. I need to have a conversation with God but I definitely need to listen. God has a goal in mind. I won’t know what it is unless I ask and listen. The first thing I should always do is talk with God (pray).
I should talk with God (pray) for everyone I know. If I can’t think of something to talk with God about, I can go down the list of my family and friends.
I need to talk with God about our government. Our freedom of religion is important. Jesus is our ruler in God’s country but we do physically live in “this country” and we need peace and freedom.
The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live.
