The Power of Simple Prayer

Adapted from the resource The Power of Being Thankful - by Joyce Meyer 2 MIN READ

I often tell people that one of the things they can do to enjoy their lives is to simplify their lives—that includes their prayer life too. Now when I say “simplify” your prayer life, I don’t mean you should not pray often. The Bible says, Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17 NKJV). We can and should go to God frequently in prayer.

What I mean is that if you try to sound too eloquent, you can complicate your prayer life to the point of it being unbearable. It is good to know that we don’t have to try to impress God with our prayers.

Thankfully, we can just talk to Him like a friend; tell Him the way we truly think and feel. With God, you can always be sincere, and you can always be yourself. You don’t have to put on religious airs. You can be real with God and simply enjoy spending time with Him.

Prayer of the Day: Father, I thank You that talking with You is not a complicated process. I am so grateful that I can be myself with You and just pray what is on my heart. Help me to remember that prayer is a conversation and that I can come to you anytime throughout the day.
