Prayer is not a mysterious practice reserved only for clergy and the religiously devout. Prayer is simply communicating with God--listening and talking to him. Believers can pray from the heart, freely, spontaneously, and in their own words.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James 4:8
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7
Father, in Your mercy, hear our prayers.
