In her first release, The Joy of Believing Prayer, scheduled for August 2001, Joyce Meyer highlights the how to and the results of casting all cares upon the Lord...Joy!
For many years I was dissatisfied with my prayer life. I was committed to praying every morning, but I always felt something was missing. I finally asked God what was wrong, and He responded in my heart by saying, "Joyce, you don't feel that your prayers are good enough". I was not enjoying prayer because I had no confidence that my prayers were acceptable.
Too often we get caught up in our own works concerning prayer. Sometimes we try to pray so long, loud, or fancy that we lose sight of the fact that prayer is simply conversation with God. The length or loudness or eloquence of our prayer is not the issue, it is the sincerity of our heart and the confidence that God hears and will answer us that is important.
We must develop the confidence that even if we simply say, "God help me", He hears and will answer. We can depend on God to be faithful to do what we have asked Him to do as long as our request is in accordance with His will. We should know that He wants to help us because He is our Helper (Hebrews 13:6).
