Many times as we enter into prayer we simply enter with Faith Talk. Maybe we do not know or believe or have faith… but we still do Faith Talk. I think we are encouraged in scripture to do so.
For example: “But as for me, I will look to the LORD;
I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me.” (Micah 7:7) So, why pray… if we do not think ‘God will hear me.’ Or, “O.K. Lord here it comes my prayer of desperation and intercession…” We are surely believing as King David did that the Lord will hear us: “Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth.” (Psalm 54:2) David was Faith Talking.
Or, we Faith Talk our praise and thankfulness and gratitude for blessings and plenty we have received, it might all be Faith Talk. What’s wrong with that? It is much better than sour Lemon Prayers, unbelieving, bitter and having no faith… and no Faith Talk.
Faith Talk is for us…not the Lord. So why do it? It is good for us. It builds faith.
“When you pray, don’t babble on and on as the Gentiles do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!” Jesus
