Prayers require more of the heart than of the tongue. The eloquence of prayer depends upon praying in GOD'S WILL, the fervent desire to know and obey HIM, and the simplicity of Faith. When we "pray" 'vain and repetitious prayers', it can become no more than babbling. Our using "soft words" to 'confess' our sins only confirms our rebellion to GOD; it reflects our insincerity to change, and our intentions to continue repeating this sin over and over. Matthew 6:7, "And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases..." Fine thoughts and politeness of expressions are not humble, GOD seeking prayers. Daniel 9:3-4, "...seeking HIM by prayer and pleas...and made my confessions..." Don't we realize that such "prayers" are an abomination to GOD? Don't we realize, if we are not with GOD, we are against HIM? Don't we realize that if we are not with GOD, the Scriptures become a "curse" and when we seek HIM and are in agreement with HIS WILL, we experience HIS love, mercy and Blessing? So, what is prayer to you? A CURSE OR A BLESSING?
