Good morning people who don’t try to impress God with your prayers
Matthew 6:7 NIV And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.
Jesus makes it clear:
The power of prayer is not in the number of our words, but in the purity of our motivation: Prayer is not about Father getting on our page, but about us getting on Father’s page.
When it comes to our Father hearing us, quantity does not equal clarity.
We must remember that our Father knows what we need before we ask. Therefore, we don’t need to explain something to Him in order to bring Him up to speed with what’s happening. He already knows.
You might think you don’t have time to pray long prayers. That’s ok, because, short but sincere prayers get our Father’s attention!
