Power In Prayer
Be Anxious For Nothing, But In Everything By Prayer And Supplication With Thanksgiving Let Your Requests Be Known To God. Philippians 4:6
God does not require prayers with seminary phrases and fancy words from us. He wants our love, worship and our time; He already knows what is on our minds and in our hearts.
Still, sometimes I find my mind has wondered off from a great start to a prayer to the Lord and landed on the grocery list I forgot to make. Other times I find myself staring at the wall trying to form words to express my feelings at the moment. I have been known to just close my eyes and ask the Holy Spirit to intercede on my behalf.
And then there are days that I recite the prayer that Jesus taught us how to pray with The Lord's Prayer. Any way you choose honors the Lord if it is honest and from your heart.
The following prayers have been helpful for me at times that I am struggling to express myself in words. I hope they will be a blessing to you too.
