He loves to surprise. I've never felt so right about being so wrong. Oh, and he never forgets my name.
And how do you pray or talk to God? Do you just sit around or do you prostrate and humble yourself before God like Jesus did coz after all He is the Creator and one does not just sit and pray and talk as if to a friend. One bows and humbles oneself before Him and ask and plead with Him for help and guidance as He is the Lord of the Universe

No, I do not bow and prostrate, nor do I plead.

I talk to my Creator like a close beloved friend, and I speak from the heart. I share what is in my mind and heart.

Any God who expects and requires that sort of ego-boosting obeisance is not very godly, IMO . . . that is a human expectation.

The point of praying is to enhance your obedience -- so you are ready to hand over your head.

There are important jobs for your head, such as debating and establishing your own opinions. Religion's job is to take away your own head, so you'll loose your ability to think rationally, and another human being can take over control of you.
