Watch the above video clip ‘A Chat With God’. Its duration is 3:26 min. This video is talking about some of the struggles and thoughts a person might have with prayer, through the lens of a Chat conversation with God.
Yes, prayer can sometimes be a tough thing for people. Many really don’t know how to pray or what exactly is going on when we pray to our Creator. In this busy life, people don’t get even 5 minutes to be with His Creator. But we all know that we should pray and that our Lord loves to hear our prayer or rather our conversation with Him.
But then comes the next question: How to pray? What exactly is the right way to pray? Is there any hard and fast rules in prayer? How can i start this chat with God? Which is the perfect time? Is it the morning time when i wake up from my sleep or is it to be done when i get back to my bed at the end of a long busy day? Or is it an ongoing thing in my mind all through the day?

The Story of Jesus in the Desert
The story of Jesus in the desert meets us in many different ways. It is an amazing account of God taking on the feeble form of a created being and experiencing the utter humility of unprotected isolation in barren wilderness. This story has also become our story – part of the glorious history of our family of faith, celebrated each year in the season of Lent. But it is also the very human story of one man carrying the huge burden of his calling, seeking strength to come to terms with the task that lay before him, and refusing to accept the short cuts and compromises offered by the enemy.
40 Days of Jesus in The Desert – Illustrations Explained
1. In a room scented by the smell of sawn timber, a man hears a voice in his inner ear calling him It is time – your time, and mine enough of the mending and making and shaping of wood time to put aside the tools the sharp nails… can wait.
2. While the village still slept, he set his face to the low morning light and followed this beautiful voice calling him leading him drawing him into wilderness.
3. He did not look back to the comforts of home, but walked on… into the desert – the place of suffering and desolation, where each rock hid its own danger every stone could strike at the heel he walked onwards alone.
4. As he walked he left something of himself behind. the skin of civilisation was being burnt away by the hot sun driven away by the wild animals But in the rhythm of every step was the music of his voice – singing to his soul It’s your time… and mine.
5. After a time, the desert seemed so big, and he – so small A panic rose in him. It clutched him like a hand at his throat Who am I? What am I? What terrible road lies before me? Father, my body is weak I am a drop of water On a rock Under the hot desert sun Soon I will be gone. still he walked still he followed That voice.
6. Dust devils plucked specks from the sand and spat them at his face. Walk on my Son This is your time… and mine.
7. He followed the voice into dark canyons carved by raging streams now long dry and he was grateful to leave behind the dark places to climb towards light.
8. And from a high place he watched in wonder as the sun sank into the desert sea He watched as it stained the sand like wine spreading on a table like blood.
9. As evening fell He looked for a place to rest The dry desert skies sucked back the warmth from the ground as he lay down his head And the night creatures were set loose hungry and wild.
10. A weak morning light filtered into the ravine where he slept and he woke That restlessness was there still gnawing at him calling him on Now is your time…and mine Now is your time…and mine
11. Find me O my father Make me Take me back to you My throat is cracked But thirst is more For you My stomach craves A food that feeds only this – My soul. So I walk Desperate Close to falling Stumbling… To you.
12. At his lowest point, a blessing fell at his feet. A sound brought him to some rocks, and he peered over into the shade and saw foxes at play. The cubs left their lair and tripped over each other, nibbling ears and licking fur, oblivious to his presence, at one with all things. the pure joy of the moment found its way into the very centre of him. It lit up his soul. Desert became paradise. Father came to Son.
13. The joy in his heart could not stay still. It found its way to his feet and made a dance! what a dance! His sandals beat the dust and his clothes cracked the air about him.
14. He danced down valleys and over stream beds. He danced the day long….. A dance for the hungry and the thirsty A dance for the broken and hurting A dance for the widows and the fatherless children A dance for the lonely and the betrayed A dance for the poor in spirit and those captives to the night A dance for those downcast and robbed of hope A dance for the dying and those left in grief A dance for those who suffer and need relief A dance of for grace and love and mercy A freedom dance… For all mankind And as he danced, he drove away the black birds of death and hate and war, and profiteering and slavery – evil took to flight. This day belonged to the dancer – And the Dance.
15. Exhausted now. Burned up. The responsibilities of this journey. The burdens to carry on the way The foolishness of the dance And his dreams lay like bleached bones at his feet.
16. The terrible black birds drew near again. drawn to the sweet smell of carrion Blown in on the breeze.
17. That night, he stood alone before the moon. Listening again for the voice Straining for its music His face shone with the reflected light. Sun to moon. Moon to face. And he started to hope again. Now is your time my son. In you are my hopes – my dreams In you is everything I am. In you is all my love, all my mercy, all my grace Now is your time… and mine.
