Evening Prayer ~ Listen To My Heart

Prayers are always heard,

no matter how simple.


“In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”1

– John Bunyan

Even little prayers reach the Lord; He’s not concerned with the words we say, but it’s what is within our hearts that speak volumes to Him. Please do me a favor and don’t get sidetracked by thinking you need to pray like anyone else . . . God created you uniquely and your voice is a reflection of all that is within your heart. Just be yourself; after all, He knows you inside and out already and I guarantee God is not impressed with your vocabulary.

Evening Prayer

 By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.2

Psalm 42:8
