"Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge." (Psalm 62:8)
My biggest obstacle to prayer is when I filter the words rather than praying what I'm truly feeling. It is most helpful for me to say out loud to God the good, the bad, the ugly & the lovely. What is really in my heart, no matter how messed up or wonderful, craves to be shared with Jesus. Then the Holy Spirit has room to move around in my soul and bring healing, strength & guidance. Lord, please help me to pour out my heart to you. Amen.
