The question you must ask yourself is: Do I really trust my heavenly Father the way a little child trusts?
Your prayers will reveal your belief system when it comes to trust in the Father.
You see, I really do believe my heavenly Father is loving and faithful and has my best interests at heart. I believe He hears my prayers. I believe God the Father looks at me as one of His little children. He calls me up close to Him and says, “Tell Me what is on your heart, son.” He says, “Get quiet and listen to what I say to you.”
So simple, so conversational, so unprofessional, so real. That’s the way He teaches us to pray. He desires the honest simplicity of praying like a little child, not praying to be heard by others or attempting to impress God. Now there is an outlandish thought. Can you imagine trying to impress God with your prayers? What a waste of time.
In coming to our Lord in prayer with the spirit of childlikeness, we will realize the Fatherhood of God in our lives.
