There was a point when I realized that every rebellious path my "you can't tell me what to do" heart led me down had left me sad and broken. That moment is when I first understood this verse.
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.
