Pastor Silverio Sanchez continues the series "Hello God: simple prayers in a complicated world." We've learned that we often have to earn the things that we want in this life. So we work hard to achieve our goals and expectations and earn the right to enjoy our achievements and success. However, the same doesn't apply to our relationship with God. We don't have to earn or achieve anything in order to pray. We don't have to be a "certain amount of holy" for the right to pray. We pray as children of a God who loves abundantly and unconditionally.
"God receives us just as we are and accepts our prayers just as they are. In the same way that a small child cannot draw a bad picture so a child of God cannot offer a bad prayer.” - Richard Foster, Prayer
