God invites us—wants us—to pray to him anytime, anywhere, and about anything. He wants us to ask him because he wants us engaged, looking to him at all times. There are times that we don’t take advantage of prayer because we are too proud, afraid, ashamed, or just too busy. But in Matthew 7:7-11, Jesus explains why prayer is important. If we ask, God will respond—every time. It may not be according to our timetable, but he will make things happen according to his will.
