Bigger Is Not Better

There are two things to which you should never reduce prayer.

First, never reduce prayer to a grand show of pretense.

Second, never reduce prayer to a heap of empty words.

Instead, just be real.

“And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words.” (Matthew 6:7, ESV)
