God loves you. He knows everything about you. The Bible says that there is joy in heaven over one sinner that repents. Through His Son, He has made you a child and joint-heir of His riches and like a good father, He takes great care of you: He protects, comforts, provides, teaches, nurtures, guides, loves, and desires your good.

Name for His goodness, thank Him for your daily provision, tell Him your concerns and problems, pray for others (your enemies, friends, associates and relatives), pray for yourself, pray for the government. This list is by no means
exhaustive. As you read the Bible, you will find that your prayers will mature because you'll know the will of the Lord and His ways.
Tell other people about Jesus. Sharing to someone about your experience of Christ makes you in a way a preacher even if you...
