When we pray to God, we should realize that God already knows what is on our hearts and minds. Repetitive phrases and extra words are not necessarily more effective. We don't need to worry about using words to impress or to retell entire stories. God already knows us and the events of our lives. We should pray to God with prayers from our hearts. We can even follow the prayer that Jesus teaching us (Matthew 6:9-13) We can follow the directions that Prayers can be short or long, but what is important is our sincerity and faith in God's willingness to hear us and act on our behalf!
Trust that God will hear your prayers.
Thank You for knowing me and listening to me. Help me to come to You in prayer so that I can communicate with You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
