After reading E.M. Bounds’ Power Through Prayer, I wrote about my thoughts concerning prayer and loving God with my heart as well as with my mind.

For many, there remains a question as to how one should pray. To that end, I have found Luther’s A Simple Way to Pray to be very helpful and worth reading.

Using scripture as an anchor for prayer brings us to a good reflection on the Gospel as well as guides what our petitions should be.

For me, such prayer keeps me focused (my mind tends to wander) and keeps me from confusing prayer with a trip to see Santa at the mall.

I hope to pray to and for the glory of God!
