Be Honest, Honest to God - UpWords - Week of October 24-30

Be Honest — Honest to God
by Max Lucado

Prayer really is simple. Resist the urge to complicate it. Don’t take pride in well-crafted prayers. Don’t apologize for incoherent prayers. No games. No cover-ups. Just be honest—honest to God.

Climb into His lap. Tell Him everything that’s on your heart. Or tell Him nothing at all. Just lift your heart to heaven and declare, "Father... Daddy." Stress. Fear. Guilt. Grief. Demands on all sides. And all we can summon is a plaintive, "Oh, Father." If so, that’s enough. Your heavenly Father will wrap you in His arms!
