Forget the magic words

Your Father knows what you need before You ask. Matt. 6:8

When we pray we aren’t telling God anything He doesn’t already know. We aren’t saying the magic words or performing the correct ritual that obliges Him to give us what we ask. We aren’t that powerful, but we are powerfully loved by our  loving, powerful, interested Father. His love for us is the reason we can ask and the reason He answers. We pray to experience and be empowered by His love as we desire good together.

Father, here are my heart’s desires, the ones we’ve talked about before, the one’s that have just come up, and the ones I can’t even verbalize.
