When should I pray?

Here's the answer:

You can pray to God anytime!

Many people pray before they eat a meal or before they go to bed. These are good times to pray and be thankful, but they aren’t the only times you can pray. You can pray to God anytime, as David prayed at evening, morning, and noon (Psalm 55:17). Jesus often got up early to pray and stayed up late to pray (Mark 1:35; Luke 6:12).

You can pray to God anywhere. God even heard Jonah’s prayer from the belly of a big fish (Jonah 2)!

But before God will listen to your prayers, you must get rid of your sins (Psalm 66:18). The Bible says that turning from sin and trusting Jesus’ death on the cross is the only way to get rid of your sins. Find out about Jesus here!
