Have you ever felt demotivated when it comes on to praying because you think you aren't praying the correct way or your prayer isn't long enough so God will not hear you? I have experienced that same feeling too, and it was because I was making prayer too hard. I later learned that God doesn't hear my prayers based on my perfect choice of words or how lengthy my prayer is (not saying that praying for long periods is wrong).
For this long time, I only prayed when I had a request or was in immediate need of rescuing from danger and crisis when prayer is simply communicating with God. Often time we think prayer is just talking, but prayer includes staying quiet and listening as well.
Psalm 46:10 tells us,
Sometimes, all we need is to sit still in the presence of the Lord and allow him to refresh us. Being still also enables us to reflect on the goodness of God, his power, grace, and faithfulness towards us.
