God Will Provide Prayer Eternal God, Your word says that I should not worry about what I shall eat, or what I shall drink or what I shall wear.

Here are 5 great stories from the Bible about talking to God.
The author of Hebrews tells us that we can come to God and talk to Him in prayer, so “Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). If you put your trust in the Son of God, you can have confidence that Father God will hear your prayers and you can “receive mercy and…grace” when you are in a “time of need.”
Some of the most effectual prayers that I’ve heard are from people who have humbled themselves and confessed their faults to one another. James wrote “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” (James 5:16), and that righteousness is found only in Jesus Christ Who became sin for us so that we’d become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).
God resists the proud but gives grace only to the humble (James 4:6), and we see that in 2 Chronicles where the prayer for his nation is, “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14). God’s grace flows downhill…to the humble of heart, and He will forgive our sins as a nation if we would only seek His face and turn from our wickedness.
Abraham was called a friend of God. Wouldn’t you like to have that same relationship with God? You can. Jesus Himself told the disciples, “No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15). Friends share what they know and Jesus shared what He knew about the Father.
When we live in obedience to the Word of God, God’s ears are open to our prayers and we can talk to Him as we would a friend. James wrote of Abraham that “the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God” (James 2:23). What a privilege to come to God in prayer as we would talk to a friend.
Talk to God and He will talk to you through His Spirit and through His Word. That’s where His voice is heard most clearly, but talk to Him as you would a friend…only in a holy reverence, but talking to God is as easy as you reading this. Just talk to Him. He is listening.
You can talk to God any time, any place. Share these verses with someone you know who wants to learn more about talking to God!
The events of last week have left our nation reeling. The Senate's confirmation of Joe Biden as president-elect shocked many believers and seemed to counter the words of the many prophets who said Trump would win no matter what. Thursday's violence at the Capitol and ensuing media madness have only seemed to escalate the divisions between us.
What do Christians do now? Prophet, author and end-times expert Michael Snyder spoke to Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelineswith words of both admonishment and encouragement. 'What America ultimately needs more than anything else is Jesus. And that's the only hope for our future. You know, for the past four years, people in the Christian or the evangelical world have been putting so much passion and energy into politics. But ultimately, what we need to put our passion and energy into is our relationship with God and winning souls, because that's what really matters.
'And ultimately, the best-case scenario for a Trump presidency is that he would give the church cover to do what the church needs to do,' Snyder says. 'And that's to turn America back to God and win souls and win hearts. Because it wasn't Trump who was going to turn America around; it was only going to be the church. We've got to win hearts; we've got to turn people back to God; we've got to show people the wickedness of our ways—that we can't kill babies on an industrial scale; that we can't have gay marriage in our country; that we can't do all the things we've been doing, which we've talked about so frequently.
'We've got to turn back to God with all of our hearts and follow His ways because that's what made America great in the first place: that we were a Christian nation, and we followed the Lord,' Snyder says. 'And that's why we're in so much trouble today, because we've turned away from God.'
