Today is the second part of my personal story explaining why spending time with Jesus is my most important priority. Here is the First Part if you missed it!
I began rather formally. Imitating prayers and vocabulary that sounded safe and dignified. The good thing about committing to praying for 30 minutes everyday is that you can only keep up a stiff format for about 5 minutes, until either you give up…or you start talking like yourself.
After I finished asking God for what I thought I should, world peace, good grades, safety for my family, I started to tell Him about what I was thinking and feeling. I told Him who my crush was and what I was dreading about the day. I told Him all my secrets.
