Talking to God, The Father of Heaven is a relief. He is the One who always listens, so we should always speak with Him.
Telling our problems is one thing but letting Him in our happiness is our trust toward Him that we always call Him whenever we feel sad or happy.
He loves and answers our callings whenever we speak to Him. There is no bound of time and situation, so we should always pray before Him.

Yes, if you’re feeling anxious, you can find comfort through prayer—because prayer helps us build a deeper relationship with God.
This relationship allows us to renew our strength in our Creator, as He can give us wisdom, courage, and comfort.
To pray for deliverance, find a quiet and safe place. Then, take some deep breaths or meditate to clear your mind.
Once your mind is tranquil, pray out loud or in your head. You can choose to say your prayer or use a prayer written by someone else.
If you find comfort in movement, write your prayer on paper or in the air in front of you.
Writing your prayer by hand can be very relaxing, as it forces your mind to focus on writing instead of being distracted.
Anxiety, worry, and fear are common emotions that we all experience from time to time.
Sometimes we face challenges in our work and relationships. Alternatively, many people experience anxiety when they go through a stressful life event, such as moving house.
If your anxiety is short-term and manageable, you can reduce it through meditation, sleep, mindfulness exercises, rest, and prayer.
However, if your stress interferes with your ability to lead an everyday life or if you experience panic attacks, you may need to seek treatment from a mental health professional.
