Be Yourself in Prayer

littlethingsaboutgod:

Sometimes it seems as if many believers feel the need to alter who they are when they come to God in prayer, particularly when others are around. As if God will not hear them if they are themselves, they play characters, hoping to be more acceptable to God and others.

I have personally struggled over the years with what to say and how to say it when I pray. I’m in good company. Even the apostles asked Jesus to teach them to pray. And with kind, compassionate patience in his voice, he taught them to pray simply, humbly, confidently, according to God’s word, and for God’s glory.

You could sum up Jesus’s teaching into a few guiding principles.

Good read =)

Who wants to

I am sorry for the random rambles.

I joke around a lot when I am nervous. It’s sort of like a cover-up for me to avoid letting people know how I really feel.
