Breath Prayers, or Prayer of the Heart

RobynHerself's picture

Some prayers seem to rise, naturally and without effort, from within our hearts. Perhaps you might be driving in the car or cooking a meal and suddenly realize your spirit is praying. These tend to be short prayers, consisting of just a phrase.

At most times of my life, I can remember having a "prayer of the heart." In my teenage years I prayed, "Jesus, let others see YOU through me."

In my late teens and early adult years, my heart cry was for wisdom. Then, I began to pray, "Lord, let me see as you see." (dangerous prayer!)

In recent years my dominant "automatic" prayers have been, "Lead us in paths of righteousness," and "Thy kingdom come!"

What has been your experience with these spontaneous prayers of the heart? Please share!
