The Purpose of Simple PrayersSimple Prayers is a tool that combines the word of the Lord with prayer and guides you through the process of praying Scripture back to God. It will enable you to think God's thoughts after Him and to personalize them in your own thinking and practice. It will also provide you with a balanced diet of prayer by guiding your mind each day through different kinds of prayer. Because it is based on Scripture, you can be assured that these prayers will be pleasing to God. This application will encourage you in your walk with God by enriching and enhancing the quality of your experience of prayer.The concept of communicating with God, of talking directly and openly with Him just as we would talk with an intimate friend, is one of the great truths of the spiritual life. Just as the key to quality relationships with other people is time spent in communication, so the key to a growing relationship with the personal God of heaven and earth is time invested in speaking to Him in prayer and listening to His voice in Scripture. Most of us want to pray more than we do, but we often find that our prayers are unsatisfying and sporadic. One problem with prayer is that it is easy to slip into the extreme of all form and no freedom, or the opposite extreme of all freedom and no form. The first extreme leads to a rote or impersonal approach to prayer, while the second produces an unbalanced and undisciplined prayer life that can degenerate into a series of one "gimme" after another. Simple Prayers was designed to make prayer a more enriching and satisfying experience by providing both form and freedom in the practice of prayer. The form is Scripture itself, and the freedom is your own thoughts and prayers in response to the truths of Scripture.
