Questions about Praying & Heaven
Connor asks, How do you ask questions to God?
You just talk to God and ask. You can do this at any time and place, but it’s very important that you make the time and have a place to listen for an answer. It is very easy to ask God a question--God has designed us so that we will have questions! It is very much harder to hear the answer. To listen to God. That is where prayer comes in, where we talk to God and take time to listen for an answer. But be patient. Sometimes it takes a long time for us to be able to hear an answer. And often the answers may come when you are reading the Bible, or other religious writings. And remember that the answer that God gives can also come through the words or the actions of people you know, especially those who love you. Just keep listening and trusting that in time you’ll be able to hear an answer.
A similar question: Why do we bow our heads when we pray?
It is a way of showing respect and honoring God. There are other things that we do also to honor and respect God, for instance, kneeling to pray on our knees, or putting our hands together when we pray. Children (and adults) have been doing these things since the beginning. All these things are helpful for us especially when we are learning as children to pray, But there are many ways to pray, and you will learn more as you grow older.
Karlie writes, I saw a heart cloud last night. Does that mean someone in heaven loves me?
That God and all the company of heaven loves us is an important thing to believe and to know. All creation proclaims God’s love for us, if we have a heart that loves God. Our heart is our most important witness. And yes, Karlie, God does love you! And all of God’s family loves you as well! God loves all his children! Signs are everywhere!
