Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come (NLT). - The Bible
We have just started 2021. Many who started the journey at the beginning of 2020 were no longer with us. Many who started this year with a good job have lost their jobs because of the current situation. Is there a way we can safely walk through not only the current pandemic but all the struggles in our life? We need someone who knows our future and has the ability to guide us safely through the dangers ahead of us. Jesus can help us with this. He can teach us the dangers ahead and help us make right choices in life. But we need a way to communicate with Him, and Jesus needs a channel to speak to us. It should be two-way communication between Jesus and us.
Dear friend, this two-way communication with the all-powerful and all-knowing God and us is called prayer. Is it really possible to communicate with almighty God and get answers for our prayers? If we can reconcile our hearts with Jesus and train our hearts to listen to His voice, we will be able to listen to His voice.
How to Reconcile with Jesus?
The holy God can not communicate with the unholy. But as a mere human, we can not meet the standards of God’s holiness. We fall short and we end up making mistakes every day. But God has given us hope through Jesus Christ, who took all our mistakes on Himself and died for all of us on the cross. Jesus wants to make us holy by forgiving our mistakes and enabling us to meet God’s holy standard. If you have not reconciled with Jesus, you can ask for forgiveness with the humble heart and true conviction for your past mistakes. Jesus will surely forgive your past and make you His own child. Jesus said I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. He has the authority to forgive your past.
How to speak to Jesus?
Let the early morning time be dedicated to God. The God who created us deserves the best part of our time. We need a calm environment to focus our attention and speak to Him. The newspapers and early morning shows can wait for some time until we finish communication with Jesus. Make the early morning prayer as your everyday personal time with God.
Reconciling with Jesus needs to be our everyday experience before we start our prayer. Ask Jesus to change your life and make corrections where ever needed. Ask Him to fill your thoughts, actions, and words. Ask Him to help you make the right decisions throughout the day.
In the next section of the prayer, focus on the needs such as financial needs, health needs, and other family needs. Pray for your family members such as your parents, spouse, and children. Before closing the prayer, don’t forget to thank God for all the good things he has done in your past life. As we remind ourselves how God has answered our prayers in our past life, we will start gaining faith what we prayed today will also be answered. Faith is an important element of all our prayers.
How Does Jesus Speak to You?
Jesus will speak to us in various ways. As we pray regularly we notice the distinct patterns. Some times the problem we expect to happen will not even come close to us. In other times when we are walking through hard times, our hearts will be completely at peace and Jesus will use the tough time to teach new things for us. When we come out of the problems, we will be renewed and strengthened. You will feel it as you grow strong in your prayer life.
As we grow close to Jesus each day we will start hearing definite signs of directions in our life. Jesus will start pouring out His concerns for mankind. We will be compelled to pray for other's needs than for our own prayer needs. We will start understanding the heart of Jesus and cry out along with Him for the nation and for those who destroy and waste their lives. Our heart will bleed easily for other’s problems and tears will flow out of your eyes freely when we pray for people we don’t even know. This is the sign of your spiritual maturity in Jesus.
Dear friend, do you have an unanswered prayer? Are you praying about it sincerely by reconciling with Jesus? We would like to join with you and pray along with you today. Jesus will surely answer your prayers. His ways far better than our ways. As we allow Jesus to work in our lives, He will lead us and help us. You will surely see a difference in the coming days. Do not lose hope.
Shall we pray together for your needs? Place your hands on your heart and pray to Jesus. May Jesus' place His nail-pierced hands on top of your hand.
Dear Jesus, I come to you with a humble heart. I have learned about prayer today. I would like to speak to you every day and want to hear your voice. I need your guidance in my life.

Take away all the bitterness, envy, and impure thoughts from the heart. Cleanse me. Help me be your child. Change my life. Fill my heart with your heavenly peace. Let me use the precious days that I have left in my life for your glory. I give you all the glory. I thank you for all the good things you have given in my life. Thank You, Jesus. In Jesus’s name, I pray.
