Prayer--100 Words


Not sure 100 words is sufficient to describe prayer.

One million wouldn’t be enough.

Best to keep it simple. Why make this subject complex?

Gandhi said, “It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”

I buy that. What words impress God? What words does He need?

Prayer isn’t just talking. Seems listening is vital in prayer.

Prayer is sometimes quiet. Sometimes screaming.

Prayer is more about God than silly rules or formalities.

Prayer is about God. Abba. Father. Daddy. It’s about closeness. And hearing.

Prayer is not about me. But Him.


  1. Communication. Very important to the Christian. Utmost.

    What made you decide on 100 word essays?


  2. Well, Heidi...I had gotten so burned out on you know, I stopped for a couple of months...

    When I came back, it was just a burning desire to share some insights...lessons learned...and overall thoughts that came to me...

    I'm thinking some will be deep...some very shallow...some thought provoking...some will just be my heart...

    Maybe people will learn a few things along the I am learning as I write...

  3. This is beautiful<3
