I love when I read a sentence, paragraph, or tweet which captures my attention, challenges me, or confirms something for me.
The founder of Alpha, Nicky Gumbel, is a fantastic communicator (up there for me with fellow faith writers Max Lucado, Karen Kingsbury, Lysa TerKeurst….) and I look forward to reading his posts on Twitter each week.
His three principles of prayer have impacted my prayer life for the better, and yet streamlined how I approach prayer at the same time.
- Keep it HONEST.
- Keep it SIMPLE.
- Keep it UP.
Honest, simple prayers, often lifted to Him. Regardless of how I feel, what I face or my lack of faith.
Keeping the lines of communications open with God not only helps me remain focused on Him, it calms me as I invite Him to speak with me.
Unsure what to say when you pray, friend?
- Be honest.
- Be brief.
- Be praying.
