Prayer can be sweet for the follower of Christ… Great Martin Luther quote:

“Luther told any Christian to begin to pray by saying the following to the Lord:

Although . . . you could rightly and properly be a severe judge over us sinners . . . now through your mercy implant in our hearts a comforting trust in your fatherly love, and let us experience the sweet and pleasant savor of a childlike certainty that we may joyfully call you Father, knowing and loving you and calling on you in every trouble.” (Prayer, by Tim Keller)
