Matthew 6:7 NIV
And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.
When we pray, we need to say what we need to say to God and then go on about our day. God knows the desire of our hearts and our thoughts. Therefore, we don’t need to think of ways to say things clever when praying. Folks of the world love to hear themselves talk. They love to try to explain themselves and be philosophical so that people can see how intelligent they are. That kind of behavior is worthless with God. The reality is that we can’t outsmart God. We are better off telling him exactly how we feel and asking for what we want. More words doesn’t mean higher chance of your prayer being met. Authentic expression of your heart and words and grateful is what God is looking for.
