Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Talking to God

"Prayer is not another good thing that the Christian does. Prayer, communion with God, was bought for us at the highest price. Please do not sideline prayer to something that is really good that we nearly do. No, no, it is rather our being known and knowing the Father. It is communion with God: welcomed ones in relationship with our Father, forever in Jesus' name; ransomed ones in relationship with our Father, forever in Jesus' name; belonging ones in relationship with our Father, forever in Jesus' name."

From Bud Burk's sermom, "Jesus Prayed, So We Could Pray" delivered December 31, 2011 at Bethlehem Baptist Church. Quote from about 26:03 minutes in.
How easy it is to reduce prayer to something like mental email to God rather than seeing it for what it should be: access to God the Father made possible by the suffering and sacrifice of God the Son.
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. (Romans 5:1-2 KJV)
Praise God for His Son Jesus, who has given us access to the righteous and holy God.
