We can always talk to God

 

We should remain calm, we should not lose our temper, but get accustomed with prayer from an early stage, to turn our eyes and soul to God, because help will come from Him.

While crossing a deep and fast river, on a small bridge, we usually look above or to the sky for so we don’t get dizzy. We should do the same when we are surrounded by the waters of temptation. We should remain calm, we should not lose our temper, but get accustomed with prayer from an early stage, to turn our eyes and soul to God, because help will come from him. God loves us and wants us to be always as close as possible to Him, to live in unity, and to talk always with Him.

For this reason, sometimes he allows pain to come into our lives so that we seek Him. Children, when have everything they run around all day, they forget about their parents. But when they start being hungry, when they fall, when they are scared or someone hits them, they run to their parents for help. We do the same with God.
