scripture friday.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

-The Bible

no words.

heart-6_l

Have you ever wanted to pray and couldn’t?

The words just won’t come out.

God doesn’t look at the outside …

… he looks in our heart.

It’s alright if there are no words.

God hears you anyway.

unanswered prayers.

I used to pray in a way that I thought accomplished something.

Until I discovered that most of the time it didn’t. At least not in this present life.

Now I know that the best prayer to pray is not my will be yours be done.

pray

For some, that is not a very bold prayer. But it’s how Jesus prayed.

I used to think to pray like that was settling.

I now know it’s trusting.

When you trust, you accept unanswered prayers.

no words.

Sometimes, there aren’t any words.

Have you ever wanted to pray, and couldn’t?

The words just won’t come out.

Another thing the Bible tells us is that God does not look at the outside …

…he looks in our heart.

It’s alright if there are no words.

 

 

 

God hears you anyway.
