You can talk to God anytime – for free

Loneliness is a growing problem in our society, especially for divorced people, single mothers, and the elderly. One example of this human tragedy is an advertisement in an American newspaper that read: ‘I will listen to you talk for thirty minutes without comment for five dollars.’ It sounds like a hoax, but the person was serious and before long was receiving ten to twenty calls a day. That’s how real the pain of loneliness is for some.
But Ralph Waldo Emerson was right when he said: ‘The only way to have a friend is to be one.’ Yet even while we are struggling to do that, the Bible reminds us that God’s love is always there, and that He ‘is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.’ You can talk to Him for free, anywhere, anytime. All it takes is a smidgeon of faith and a few moments of prayer.
