“OMG”… has nothing to do with Him.

“And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their  many words.  So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”
[Matthew 6:7 & 8]

Repetitious, rote, cliché, or canned prayers… have ‘nothing to do with Him’.  This my friends, is all about us… and our lack thereof.  It is our lack of attention and focus on Scripture… therefore lack in knowledge of Him, that prevents us from using His language to speak.  It is our mistrust in believing that He is who He says He is… a God who will never leave us or forsake us; the One who will provide all of our needs; a Savior who so loves us in spite of our deficiency in love and faithfulness; and a Spirit who knows what we need, before we know, we need it… including our words to speak.

Sow… put your cans back on the shelf and…

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And do not lean on your own understanding.   In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.” [Proverbs 3:5-6]

… and your [our] prayers, also.

“JESUS”!
…  jams4JESUS

“God is great.  God is good.  Thank You for this food.  By His hand, we’ll all be fed.  Thank You for this daily bread… Amen.”

[I’m guilty… over & over again!  Thank You Lord for GRACE!]

I challenge you family…

To talk with the Lord, from your heart… to His.

“And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words.  So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”  [Matthew 6:7 & 8]
