You can identify with these prayers. In simple, everyday English, yet with reverence, I have tried to express many of the heartfelt and inner cries of God's people. I know that prayer is hard. Some neglect it altogether because it is. That is a tragic mistake. Instead, one of the best ways to begin to pray is to write out your own. If you have had trouble with prayer, turn to the prayer on prayer and make it your own.
