Prayer really is simple. Resist the urge to complicate it. Don’t take pride in well-crafted prayers. Don’t apologize for incoherent prayers. No games. No cover-ups. Just be honest. Honest to God.
Climb into His lap, tell Him everything that is on your heart. Or, tell Him nothing at all. Just lift your heart to heaven and declare “Father, Daddy.” Stress, fear, guilt, grief…demands on all sides. At times, all we can summon, is a plaintive, “Oh Father.” If so, that’s enough. Your Heavenly Father will wrap you in His arms.
Here’s my challenge for you! Every day for four weeks, pray four minutes. Then get ready to connect with God like never before.
