Prayers to My Father in Heaven

I should be turning to my Father in Heaven in prayer more often. Right?

I feel released from pressure when I communicate my thoughts with Him.

I like to pray before I write, record a podcast, or do a video based on my spiritual experiences.

This recent experience was definitely spiritually strengthening for me in a wonderful prayer I had.

“I have got you.”

In my prayer I shared my desires to think better, act better and be better after a day of negative emotions.

It’s so nice and I am so grateful to express any thoughts or desires I have to Him.

During my prayer I could hear loud and clear, “Bri, I have got you. I am here to hear all your prayers and to comfort you.”

When I heard those words come across my mind, my eyes filled with tears and my heart became swollen.

It reminded me of all the many times I have felt sad, hurt, disappointed, fearful and I was able to turn to prayer for 5-10 minutes and feel at complete peace.

My negative emotions didn’t completely go away but I was able to feel comfort and know I can turn to my Heavenly Father for that comfort anytime I need and want to. 

When To Come Unto The Lord

I have a testimony that our Father in Heaven is listening and is completely aware of our thoughts and emotions. He knows that half of our lives will be spent feeling emotions that we don’t desire to have. Those are great times to come unto Him. 

Coming unto Him has brought me peace and ease. 

I feel His love and continue to hear His impression, “I’ve got you through it all.”

Coming to Know God the Father” in God the Father: Gospel Topics says,

As children of God, we have a special relationship with Him, setting us apart from all His other creations. We should seek to know our Father in Heaven. He loves, and He has given us the precious opportunity to draw near to Him as we pray. Our prayers, offered in humility and sincerity, are heard and answered. 

It’s so rewarding to my spirit and thoughts to come unto my Father in Heaven through all the funk, great moments, and all moments. 

He is there and is aware of us. 

He desires to hear from you. 

He has got you, loves you, and wants to comfort you. 

I have a testimony that my prayers bring me peace and allow me to bring out better thoughts and feelings. 

What are ways you feel Heavenly Father’s comfort?
