Jesus said, “Let the children come to me and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” – Matthew 19:14
Prayer is our way of talking to God. In prayer, we tell God what we need, we tell God we love him, and we ask God to be with us in everything we do. Sometimes we talk to God quietly in our hearts, and we know God hears us. Other times, we talk to God using words other people have written. Those people know and love God and want us to know and love him as well.
