keep it simple

I fear, lest somehow, as the  serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the  simplicity that is in Christ.2 Corinthians 11:3 (NKJV)

God really wants our  relationships and communication with Him to be simple, but the devil has  twisted our thinking about prayer because he not only knows how powerful it is,  he also knows how easy it should be for us.

Just ask yourself, Why would God  create us for communication and fellowship with Him and then complicate it? God  has not complicated anything; He has made a simple and enjoyable way for us to  pray and enjoy spending time with Him. Satan wants us to believe that prayer  has to take a long time and that we must follow a specific formula. He  surrounds prayer with rules and regulations and steals the creativity and freedom  God desires us to enjoy as we pray. He tries to keep us from having faith and  to convince us that we really are not worthy enough to be talking to God anyway  and that we cannot hear God’s voice.

When we do pray the devil always  tries to condemn us by telling us that we do not pray enough or the right way,  and that our prayers do not make a difference. He also attempts to distract us  when we are praying. For these reasons, people often feel that prayer is so  difficult and unfruitful that they rarely do it.

In general, many people seem to  be frustrated and dissatisfied with their prayer lives, but that can change. We  can pray simple, heartfelt prayers in faith and be assured that God hears and  answers.
