Short Prayers Series (Coming Soon)

I've been considering starting a new series of posts dedicated to short prayers for different needs and occasions. Short prayers have several advantages: they are powerful in their condensed form, they are deep and meaningful; they are easy to remember; they require no special preparation, they can be said at any time during the day or the night, and in any circumstances; they can be like a strong cry coming from within and making its way like a bridge of fire to the One they are addressed to. 

A short prayer can consist of just one line or a few words. We use short prayers every day, sometimes without even realizing. We often say things like: "God, help me", or "God bless him", or "Lord, forgive me". When they come from the heart and not only from the tips of our tongues, they are as good as any other prayer. God doesn't require us to remember long prayers or to spend all our time on our knees.  In fact, He doesn't care if our prayers are long or short, as long as they are honest and true. 

If you have any suggestions or stories related to short prayers, please contact me

Jesus said: "And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him." (Matthew 6:7, 8)
