God is not impressed with our extensive vocabulary or how elegant we can sound with our words. Rather, He is looking for undivided hearts toward Him, true dependence upon Him, and daily communication with Him as well as relationship. With that said, we will take Thursdays and post Two-Sentence Prayers to pray. We pray we are sincere, yielded and responsive to the answers, love, and wisdom God gives us as a result of seeking Him wholeheartedly even in the simplest of prayers.
Ever feel like you hitting a dart board with air when it comes to praying? Or where did the joy go you once had when praying? Or how do you pray when you don’t have the motivation, let alone the words? Or how do you even pray effectively?
“This, then, is how you should pray:
‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.'”
Matthew 6:9-10, 12-13 NIV
Help us Lord to pray in faith, in Your holy name and with humility, reverence, thanksgiving, worship, repentance, petition and also intercession. And let the Holy Spirit as well as the desire to know You guide our prayers. Let our prayer begin and never end. Let us pray without ceasing.
Help us to commune with you and spend quality time with You. Moreover, help us to pray consistently and daily, from Your very heart, with sincerity, confidence and belief in Your Word as well as with Your strategies.
In Jesus’s name. Amen
