What Does It REALLY Mean to TALK to God?
When we pray each day, we are TALKING to God, whether out loud or in our heads. If you’re like most people, your daily talks with God might lack structure. They also may be repetitive. You might ask for safety and security. You might petition God for something in your life to change or go right. Or you may pray for family and friends.
What if there was a way to:
Have structure to your prayers.
And avoid praying for the same things over and over.
That’s what the TALK framework does! It gives you a clear plan to consistently communicate with God. And it’s easy to remember!
Let’s dive into each element, so you can start using it TODAY.
Why THANKFULNESS is the Best Way to Begin Your Daily Prayers
The "T" in the T.A.L.K prayer framework stands for "Thankfulness."
When most of us pray, our natural inclination is to start out asking God for things. For that promotion at work, for the safety of friends and family, or to heal that loved one. But this neglects one of the most important roles of prayer, which is THANKING God for circumstances and situations he’s brought into our lives.
Psalm 118:1 - Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
Psalm 9:1 - I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
So the first thing you should do when praying is praise God. THANK Him for the big and little things going on in your life. We recommend you pick three things each day to be thankful for. Maybe it’s that beautiful sunrise, or the first sip of that morning coffee, or the great phone chat you had with a friend last night. This thankfulness sets the tone for the rest of your prayer.
TAKEAWAY: By thanking God for things in the beginning of our prayers, we give Him the praise He deserves, and set the stage for rest of our prayer.
NOTE: Our Amazon best-selling Faith 365 Bucket Journal makes this easy, by giving you space each day to write down three things you are thankful for!
