Quiet Place

they think they will be heard because of their many words.  Matthew 6:7-15  Some say that prayer is conversation with God, but if we are doing all the talking, when do we listen to what God has to reveal? We can go on and on about our needs, desires and solicitations until we’ve reached exhaustion. We owe it to ourselves to find that quiet place and the moment we quiet our selves, our words, and our lives God will minister to our hearts his assurance, his grace and his Love, …for your Father knows what you need before you ask. Remember today to take time for the  quiet place of heartfelt praise and thanksgiving and hear what God has to say.

Only A Few Words

…for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Matthew 6:7-15  One of the benefits of a prayerbook is the well thought out prayers for every situation. However, I don’t walk around with a prayerbook all day. There are definitely times when I am called to pray and I am “un – prepared”.  I had to work really hard to learn how to speak as the spirit leads me. It wasn’t easy and at times I still struggle. What we know as the “Lord’s Prayer” has rescued me many times. I give thanks to a God who already knows what I need when only a few words can be found and yet have confidence that He still hears my prayers.
