Proverbs 4:23 (New International Version)
23 Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
Proverbs 4:23 (English Standard Version)
23Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.
My child is my constant little shadow and there are just times where I need to get on the floor and pray but I can't really say what I need to get out in prayer with her there. Things that are just too personal. So, she will say: "Mommy, what are you doing on the floor?" To which I reply, "baby I am praying in my heart to God." The other day she asked me and I quote, "Mom why is your booty sticking in my face?" Because I was just on my knees...not prostrate. Then, we went to pray over the classrooms that I teach in and she in an exasperated voice said, "MOM WHAT ARE WE DOING!" I told her and she just said, "mom, I will pray in my heart."
I love this verse about Hannah's prayer:
1 Samuel 1:13 (New International Version)
13 Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving but her voice was not heard. Eli thought she was drunk...
With Eli's accusation she goes on to say, "I was pouring out my soul to the LORD." So, yes God who knows the heart, and searches the mind hears our hearts when we pray. There are times to cry out in prayer, times to just groan in prayer, and times to fall on our face. There are also times when I journal in prayer but there are times where I want no written record of what I am praying...I only want it coming from the tablet of my heart to the God who can read it. Just He and I.

Just wanting to say hey and let you know that I have been experiencing some major fatigue and that is the reason why I have not blogged much. I have also tried to limit my computer time as I
was getting sucked into the world wide web abyss. I am trying to exercise some self-control when it comes to my time spent on the computer. The whole everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial is the thing I have had to keep in mind with facebook and all of the instant communication we have going on. I am doing pretty well with that Glory to God!!
I have been thinking a lot on some passages and want to share when I am coherent!!
