Why do I pray so timidly?

Good God, why do I pray so timidly, offering hesitant requests when I’m your loved child? I’ve been commanded – almost dared – by Jesus to trust your generosity in my prayers. Give me the expectation of a child that through Jesus Christ I will receive all I ask from you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(See Belgic Confession, Art 26)

One thought on “Why do I pray so timidly?

  1. Dear Dave, have you seen the movie “The War room” it’s all about prayer and praying-it has moved me to pray more boldly, enter boldly where Jesus has torn down the veil. Blessings, Kees M
