Awkward Prayer

"Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the One who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference." -Max Lucado


It's good to know that the power in prayer is in the One Who is all powerful! 

When you pray, pray from the heart, pray with confidence, pray unceasingly, be reverent, be honest (He knows your thoughts and heart fooling Him!) don't get caught up in the words of your prayers or in repeating a "form" prayer that someone prescribes. (Even the Lord's prayer wasn't about a "form" prayer)

The One with whom you are communicating through prayer is important and He's not concerned with the exact wording but with our hearts and simply spending time hearing us communicate with Him. He's not impressed or extra-moved by "perfectly" worded prayers. So, don't worry as much about wording but focus instead on how and with whom you're communicating. Take the pressure off of yourself and humbly and honestly approach Him with prayer.

Purpose to simply pray and communicate from your heart to God, the One who hears your prayers along with His Son our one and only mediator between God and ourselves as well as with His Spirit who intercedes for us as well! What prayer team we have each time we pray!

Your prayers do make a difference! Keep on praying!
