You cannot run far or fast unless you train well. Training is the key to success but more specifically, core training is the key to sustained success. Our spiritual core needs to consist of a six-pack of prayer muscles displaying Jesus as the center and sole priority of our life. In fact, prayer should be the heartbeat of every Christian.
Being able to talk to God is one thing, but having the expectation that He will answer you is quite another. We are instructed by Jesus to ask big things from Him with the understanding and expectation that He is more than capable of delivering. So let’s pray big and see what God does.

Prayer can be awkward, so the easiest manner of diving into a convesation with God is to simply say “Thank You.”
