my note: I am sure this post will grow over time. praying can be hard at first, but with practice gets easier, less uncomfortable. my tip: talk as if you are casually talking to a mate, or as if you are pouring out your heart to your mother on her death bed.
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
