How God sees prayers...

"God looks not at the elegancy of your prayers,

to see how neat they are;

nor yet at the geometry of your prayers,

to see how long they are;

nor yet at the arithmetic of your prayers,

to see how many they are;

nor yet at the music of your prayers,

nor yet at the sweetness of your voice,

nor yet at the logic of your prayers;

but at the sincerity of your prayers,

how hearty they are.

There is no prayer acknowledged, approved,

accepted, recorded, or rewarded by God,

but that wherein the heart is sincerely and wholly.

The true mother would never have her child divided.

God loves a broken and contrite heart,

so He loathes a divided heart.

God loves neither halting nor halving.

~Thomas Brooks

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
