Have you ever read the Psalms? They are written prayers to God. Some are songs and others are just the outpourings of the heart.
I just listened to an audiobook version of “Here I Stand”, which was Martin Luther’s self defense of his writings which sparked the Protestant Reformation in 1521. (google it. It’s a great read)
Although he had many supporters among common Christians, he was facing an onslaught of criticism and pressure from the Catholic leadership to recant his writings against the church’s misuse of authority and contradiction with scripture. In preparation for his defense, he wrote out a prayer to God for strength to persevere according to God’s will.
It struck me that we too should sometimes write out our prayers to God. And so, I want to encourage you to give it a try.
But in addition to the short prayers, let’s seek the maturity of some of our faith’s forefathers and write out our heartfelt, earnest prayers to God.

Can we ask you to do us a favor?
