Applesauce prayer

I wanted to walk and talk with God as a friend.

I love the character Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. He speaks so directly to God, even argues with Him. I get the feeling he and God are on a first-name basis. In one song, Tevye asks God, "Would it spoil some vast eternal plan if I were a wealthy man?"

I, too, want to walk with and talk to God as if He was a familiar friend. So why do we put our communications with God on such a formal basis? On special occasions, serious problems, holidays, we bow our head and clear our throat and address Him with a list of concerns, requests; or thank Him for our blessings.
