I recently came across an article called Be Yourself in Prayer on the Desiring God Blog and I found it quite refreshing.
Many times I hear people praying in the old English as if they had memorized the King James Version of the Bible. And they probably have as their prayers start with something akin to “O Most High Father in Heaven , thou art …”
How a person prays is a personal matter but I do like the way this article expresses a more simple way to pray as if talking to a friend when moments of silence don’t matter between friends.
I recommend you read the article ~ you’ll truly be blessed.
