1. Establish a relationship with a caring God
It’s easier to talk to someone when you persist to establish a speaking relationship with a person that really cares.
So, your telling God your burdens and joys helps bond your relationship with God.
Figuring out that God wants to hear from you and to share all your joys, pains and thoughts with you is the first step to establishing that relationship.
And you can build on it by reading about how much God cares in spiritual literature or religious texts, such as the Bible, Quran or Torah.
