The Sounds of Prayer By Brenda Drake

I love to enter into the presence of my Lord.  In my times of prayer I know He hears every word I say.  I admit at times I really do not know always how to pray..  Some sound even to my ears more of a complaint.  I am glad God loves to hear my voice, and I am thrilled when in the silence I not only feel His presence but hear the still small voice that brings comfort or peace within.

The Sounds of Prayer

Prayer of some to the listening ear,
Sounds like music…. pleasant to hear.
The words flow like honey sweet;
Full of hope to the situation meet.
Some utter requests haltingly… not quite clear,
Uncertain of the correct words for desires most dear.
Some speak without much flair,
In simple sentences they state their prayers.
Some are prayer warriors… fluent when all alone,
In the privacy of their own home.
Some send up mini-prayers the day throughout,
Commenting on whatever they are feeling or thinking about.
Some ask with a rush of feelings overcome with great emotion.
Some pray automatically with great devotion.
It does not really matter…. do not let it cause concern within.
What matters is Jesus, your Savior, now calls you friend.
He hears every word…and even inspires some words you speak.
But it is hearts words that He really seeks.

Romans 8:26-27
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
