How to Contact God - FIVE FACTS
How to Contact God
Do you have a deep love for your Heavenly Father? Do you love Him above and beyond all things? Do you want to pray faithfully to Him, but, have trouble thinking of how to address Him? It is not as hard as it may seem.
Know how you are going to address your God:his greatest attribute is that He is our Heavenly Father, and that He loves us all. Therefore, when you pray to Him, call Him 'Lord,' or 'Father.'
Pray to God, as in one of these four categories:a) Petition; b)Gratitude, c)Repentance; and d)Praise.Petitionis when we are asking a request of God.Gratitudeis thanking Him for the way He fulfilled that request.Repentanceis acknowledging our own sinful and weak natures, and hoping for His divine mercy.Praiseis glorifying God, for the very sake of your love for Him.
Be humble when praying to God.Remember, He is the Supreme Being and ultimate reality of the entire universe. He is far greater than we could possibly realize. We are his creation. So, when praying to Him, contemplate his unfathomable greatness, and love for you, a mere creature.
Ask the angels and saints in heaven to pray to God for you (Eg:Mary...etc), or even invoke the names of holy men or women when praying (Eg: God Of Abraham...etc.)
Conclude your prayer with "Amen." 'Amen' means "May it shall be.'
QuestionHow does God speak back to your prayers?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerGod will speak to you through other people, God will show up unexpectedly; He will show up in a dream, show you a sign, or you will have an inspired thought to take action. God will lead and guide you, and manifest Himself in many ways.Thanks!
QuestionMy grandpa died. What do I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerSorry for your loss. You can pray to God for your grandfather and talk to God about your grandfather, perhaps about all the wonderful times you spent with your grandfather -- this will help tp keep him alive in your memories. It can help to talk to your parents and siblings too, if you feel you need some support.Thanks!
QuestionMay I ask Him to meet me in my sleep?Community AnswerOf course you may. There are many cases when people met God, Jesus or saints in their dreams. But don't be too fixated on this. He may fulfill your prayer in another way. He may want to meet you in real life through a person or event.Thanks!
QuestionHow can I make sure I will go to heaven?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerDifferent religions and philosophies have different takes on heaven. Your best bet is to live your life as a kind, helpful person.Thanks!
QuestionWhy has God made my luck worse?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerGod doesn't make luck worse or better; you are in charge of deciding which opportunities you take or let slip by, while the broader circumstances of life and society determine much of your luck or lack thereof. Don't be hard on yourself but do try to turn hardship into opportunity by looking for the silver lining in bad luck situations. If you blame God, you won't help yourself and that's not the purpose of belief.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I know God is listening to my prayers?Community AnswerHe is always listening. There is a saying about this: His answer may be "yes," "not now," or "I have something better for you." If we doubt that He is listening it's usually because the prayed-for thing is not coming. But He won't give it to us if it wouldn't be for our good (in the meaning of eternal life) or if we wouldn't be prepared for it. He knows what He's doing and loves us, therefore all He does is for our good. Trust and have faith.Thanks!
QuestionWill God help me get money?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIf you pray, and you are meant to have the money, then perhaps he will! God works in mysterious ways, but I assure you that if it is meant to happen, it will.Thanks!
QuestionDo you have to confess every day?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, you must try to confess as often as possible. This will help you to remain humble before God.Thanks!

People will sense His power.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I don't understand the steps? I love God, but I'm just a kid.wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThere is no set way to pray - this is just a guide. You can pray in whatever way you want, whatever way feels right to you. Even if it's just a quick thought, a thank-you, a request, whatever. You could even just talk to God like you would talk to a teddy or an imaginary friend. God hears all prayers.Thanks!
