Prayer is just talking with the Father. It is not necessary to read words written by someone. If you are a parent, and your child came to you for comfort, and he started to read words from a piece of paper, and recite them to you. What would you think? Simply talk to your Father. He is always there.
be still and know; God has spoke these very words to me before (recently) the translation literally means to relax. He has this. Thank you God!
