Simple Prayer

Prayer is simple, really.  We are the ones who over-complicate it.  We assume that we have to get it just right, or that God is more concerned about our vocabulary than He is our heart.

Prayer can be words spoken–but they might just be thoughts that are formed and directed at God.

My prayer life was changed when I finally came to realize that God, in His infinite mercy, cared more about my attitude in prayer than He did the action of prayer.  Let me explain. Spending a set amount of time in prayer on a daily schedule develops discipline, to be sure–but having an attitude of prayer all throughout the day fosters devotion.

My husband and I started dating when we were seniors in high school.  We had been dating only 6 months when he went away to college–four hours away.
