God is not impressed with our extensive vocabulary or how elegant we can sound with our words.

We pray we are sincere, yielded and responsive to the answers, love, and wisdom God gives us as a result of seeking Him wholeheartedly even in the simplest of prayers.
You ever feel like you were drowning in a sea of troubles, discouragement and hopelessness. Current news and the state of our nations even draw more despair. We, for a second or maybe an hour, feel like giving up and that God doesn’t care. Then the Holy Spirit reminds us that God will never leave us nor forsake us. He knows the plans He has for us, and plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and futures. So, let’s cry out to God in our distresses and our messes. We need immediate deliverances and permanent restoration. Enough is enough.
Father, the only thing we can manage to say between globs of tears and discouragement is HELP. Don’t let us give up on trusting in Your Word that cannot return to You void. In Jesus’ name, amen!
