Hello, John and Doves,Let's not worry too much how we approach our Heavenly Father. We approach Him through faith, hope, and love--and that is enough. Jesus is our covering. We have confidence through the Son that the Father hears us.
"I will answer them before they even call to me.
While they are still talking about their needs,
I will go ahead and answer their prayers!" Isaiah 65:24 New Living Translation, Tyndale House, publisher [NLT]
"Yet you don't have what you want, because you don't ask God for it." James 4:2 NLT
"Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
"And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him."
