What do Christians say when they pray? Part 2

Many prayers are about saying ‘thank you’, ‘sorry’ and ‘please’ to God. At other times Christians believe their prayers are like long chats with God that never really end.


Christians who enjoy chatting with God might tell him something one moment, then a little while later tell him something else. They might let him know how they feel, or what's worrying them, or share with him something that's made them laugh. Here are some examples of people in the Bible who simply talked with God:

• Adam and Eve talked with God in the Garden of Eden
• The disciples spent hours talking with Jesus
• Day after day David sang to God as he looked after his father’s sheep
