What Is Prayer?

Is it measured words that are memorized,
Forcefully said and dramatized,
Offered with pomp and arrogant pride,
In words unmatched to the feelings inside?

No, prayer is often just words unspoken,
Whispered in tears by a heart that is broken,
For God is already deeply aware
Of the burdens we find to heavy to bear.

All we need do is seek Him in prayer,
And without a word He will help us to bear
Our trials and troubles, our sickness and sorrow
And show us the way to a brighter tomorrow.

There's no need at all for "impressive prayer",
For the moment we seek God, He's already there!
