i am busy working through a ‘Seven Hebrew Words Every Believer Should Know’ Bible plan on my tablet via YouVersion and this one by Dave Adamson really struck me:

“Too often we pray when we need or want something from God – which is understandable considering the English word ‘pray’ means to ‘ask or beg’. But the Hebrew word for prayer –┬átefillah –┬ámeans to ‘self evaluate’. So to the Jews of the Bible, prayer was not a time when they asked God for things – it was a time when they examined themselves. They would use prayer as a way to compare their actions, behaviour and attitude against God’s holiness.

Could this idea change your prayers today?”

How much of my prayer time looks like this?
