“When you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.” – Matthew 6:7
There are many people who do not give serious thought to their prayers to God. They have a fixed pattern that used to be meaningful but through repetition has lost its meaning.
When you spend time in the presence of the living God, and you are sharing your wishes with Him, you must be seriously mindful of the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Ask Him while you pray if there is anything that you can do to make your prayer life more fertile. Believe in your prayers and then leave everything in God’s hands and see how He works in your life.
Father, through Christ I wish to glorify you as my Father. Grant that I, through the guidance of Your Holy Spirit, may be obedient in my quiet times with you. Amen.
