Do not make your prayers a mere formality.
A prayer is a special moment spent with God.
God is kind, God is gracious.
He is ever present at all's prayers.
Speak to God from your heart.
This must be a time used
To strengthen you, relax you,
And take all your fatigue and worries away.
It must be honest and sincere,
Done with the beauty of faith,
Humility and total surrender.
I respond to prayers where no selfishness lies.
You only trap yourselves with insincere prayers.
I do not get trapped
By phoney prayers or false tears.
I only get captured and become a willing prisoner,
When your love for Me,
Comes from all your heart, mind and soul.
When you accept Me,
In all My manifestations and forms,
When you bow with humility of total surrender, then,
I put on My golden wings for you,
And when you are ready,
I carry you back home to Me.
