At our recent church meeting we discussed the problems with our prayers. We admitted that we don’t do enough of it, felt inadequate compared to others and weren’t able to use all the long words. One person, a writer, confessed that he prayed as if he was composing a book; his prayers had a beginning, a middle and an end.
I feel that the answer is to pray, pray and pray. God sees the heart. He doesn’t need long words, God isn’t interested in polished prayers. He wants to have loving conversations with us as often as possible.
