How to Pray

     Remember, the Lord will not hear you because of the ARITHMETIC of your prayers; He does not count their numbers. The Lord will not hear you because of the RHETORIC of your prayers; He does not care for eloquent language. The Lord will not hear you because of the GEOMETRY of your prayers; He does not compute them by their length or their breadth. The Lord will not hear you because of the MUSIC of your prayers; He does not hearken to voices because they are sweet and harmonious. The Lord will not hear you because of the LOGIC of your prayers; He pays no attention to how well they are arranged or divided.

     But the Lord will hear you (and measure the amount of mercy He gives) by the DIVINITY of your prayers. If you can pray sincerely, in the Spirit, and plead the merits of Christ, your prayers will be heard.
