What is Prayer?

Is it measured words that are memorized,
Forcefully said and dramatized,
Offered with pomp and with arrogant pride
In words unmatched to the feelings inside?
No... prayer is so often just words unspoken
Whispered in tears by a heart that is broken...
For God is already deeply aware
Of the burdens that we find too heavy to bear,
And all we need do is to seek Him in prayer
And without a word He will help us to bear
Our trials and troubles--our sickness and sorrow
And show us the way to a brighter tomorrow...
There's no need at all for IMPRESSIVE PRAYER
For the minute we seek God HE IS ALREADY THERE!
