My prayer list is getting longer than my arms these days. So much so, that whenever I don't take the time to sit in Yehovah's presence, it seems that all Gehenna breaks loose. There have been so many deaths and so much sickness. I'm sitting here at this moment in shock at the sudden passing of a young man who visited my home only a few weeks ago. I have lost an uncle, a great-aunt, and a grandmother this year alone and it is only May. A cousin of mine has lost five family members this year, including the two that we share.
At the same time, I have seen much answered prayer as well. I continue to hear the words of the Messiah ringing in my heart, "But you, when you pray, enter into your closet and lock your door, and pray to your father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you in public." Matthew 6:6 ABPE
I am seeing answers to prayer that no human has heard me utter.
I like to pray in my closet (literally), but I also like to pray when I am alone in the car. I am easily distracted, so I set a timer and pray at least a minute for each prayer request. It doesn't sound very spiritual, I know, but but I can go from "Bless my husband" to "I wonder how long it will take for my child to notice I have not cleaned up her mess" in 60 seconds or less.
