We do not know how to pray as we ought.
(Romans 8:26; NRSV).
You desire honesty from the womb (Psalm 51:6; NLT).
Prayer is sharing every thought,
Sensation, feeling, word and deed
Prayer is sharing all our weakness,
Judgement, sin and selfishness
Prayer is sharing stillness, silence,
Darkness, need and loneliness
Prayer is sharing all our joys and sorrows,
Pain, fear, life and death
Prayer is listening, trusting, loving –
Facing all we undergo
Yea, though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
(Psalm 23:4; KJV).
Pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17; NIV).
Pray about everything (Philippians 4:6; NLT).
Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge (Psalm 62:8; NLT).
