Calling yourself a sheep requires humility. Trusting the Lord means living in total reliance on him, admitting he has higher insights and power than you.

Authentic Prayer: Worship

Authentic Prayer: Worship
If worship doesn’t readily flow from your mouth, ask God to reveal more of himself to you. When you see who God truly is, you can’t help but worship.

Authentic Prayer: Simplicity

Authentic Prayer: Simplicity
Let go of your own ideas of prayer and banish from your mind all the overblown words you have ever heard. Let your prayers become what the Lord says they should be. Reverent. Obedient. Dependent. Merciful. Pure. Simple.

Authentic Prayer: Confession

Authentic Prayer: Confession
God welcomes broken sinners, anyone who owns up to their failings and receives his forgiveness. Covering up your sin just compounds it. Admit everything to the Lord, holding nothing back.

Authentic Prayer: Grief

Authentic Prayer: Grief
As you talk to God, he invites you to bring into the open every thought and emotion rumbling inside you. His love creates the safest place in the world for you to express your grief.

Authentic Prayer: Grace

Authentic Prayer: Grace
Pray for grace in all its forms. Receive it when it isn’t what you want. The Lord’s kindness is strongest when you need it the most.
