Quote about Prayer by C.S. Lewis: "I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. It does not change God, it changes me.
God hears your heart. For me, this is very true-----words escape at times and my heart is earnestly praying for the Lord to provide for me and at the same time giving thanks for what He has already provided in abundance.
