At the profoundest depths of life, people talk not about God but with Him. (Elton Trueblood, 20th century American Quaker author)

Even in a secular society, people often speak about God. Sometimes, they unconsciously take His name in vain. At other times, they refer to “the Man upstairs” or use some other innocuous term. Conversations about God are usually only on a surface level. But, when one is in deep trouble or has a great need, he or she often begins to talk with God.

Be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray (1 Peter 4:7). The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16).
