    It is reassuring to read the verses you shared and to see the truth, that simple prayer is more than acceptable in God’s eyes. I recently joined a Bible group, and find myself intimidated by the praying ability of some of the other women. It’s good to remember that our Lord cares about what’s in our hearts more than our words.

      I recently joined a group too. I encourage you (and myself) to simply speak from your heart in your new group. Enjoy and learn, grow and absorb.

    Great post! This is a great reminder to talk to God from the heart and how powerful that can be. I know sometimes I overthink things. Good reminder to keep it simple

      Yes! No need to overthink it, just let your feelings and thoughts fall out in prayer.

    Very encouraging. Yes it seems when we hear others pray it’s easy to compare ourselves to them. God does just want to hear from our hearts. Sometimes in chaotic moments and praying help me is just as good as a long prayer. Either way though how wonderful it is to have a God who wants to listen and be with us.

      Amen! Some of my deepest, heartfelt prayers were simple words cried out in desperation.

    Thank you for the reminder that God sees what’s on the inside. I love the example in Matthew of the simple prayer, “Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner.”

      And thank you for sharing that verse! So simple and effective, not much more is needed.

    Thank you for this lovely reminder. God looks at our hearts, not at how verbose or eloquent we are when praying. While I can engage in lengthy, heartfelt prayers some days, there are other times when about all I can say is, “Help, Lord” – and I know He hears and answers!

      He truly is a Father to us. To know our hearts even if we don’t express them in all the same ways. He comes to our side when we call out to Him.
