Last week I prayed a tiny little prayer.
It was half finished.
It was rushed.
But my heart was in it. My desire was felt through it.
And God answered.
This tiny little prayer, when I looked back in my planner, reminded me of how much of prayer is about aligning our hearts with God. Powerful prayers come from places where we are desperate to see God’s Kingdom worked out here on earth. Powerful prayers are the ones where God knows we truly mean it.
And I did. I meant it. Every last word. I wanted to have the chance to talk to people about God. I wanted it not to be awkward to talk to people about my love for him. I wanted it to come up naturally so that people can see that I’m not trying to ram things down their throats, but that it is just a part of me that I can’t contain! And God came through (with a little help from my little man dressed as a wise man for world book day…).
Why am I sharing this story? Because I want you to be encouraged to pray the tiny small prayers that are really whats on your heart. If I’m honest, sometimes I don’t care about the big picture – sometimes I just want to have that one meaningful conversation with someone. Sometimes I’m too tired to take in all the problems of the world, so my heart focuses on one. And God hears my heart for that thing. I love that about God.
