Talk to God as if He would answer immediately. As you come before God in prayer, be aware of whom your are praying to. This being that you are praying to is the eternal Creator God who has all power and glory. Don't approach God sleepily or carelessly. You might say something that you shouldn't say.

Dating can be a good thing if done in the right way. Jesus says that the right way is with the aim of marriage and with absolute purity. Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires.
