True prayer

True prayer is measured by weight,
not by length.
A single groan before God
may have more fullness of prayer in it
than a fine oration of great length.
C. H. Spurgeon


 
In community with Deidra and the chorus of worship today

God knows are inner most thoughts, doesn't He. Thank you for sharing.

This is comforting. A good reminder, it is not a formula of words, but the heart cry that He hears. Thank you!

Joyce Meyers tolks and writes about this---how our prayers do not have to be long and flowery. My prayer life got much better after I realized that often, even in prayer, simplicity is best.

Wonderful quote and picture.:>)

So true. And I'm so grateful that He listens to me when I have a single, solid groan.
