Do you feel like you must create the perfect prayer, or God won’t want to hear from you?
Let Rachel, a self-proclaimed recovering prayer perfectionist, encourage your heart about honest prayer before God.
In this episode, Rachel shares:
- how growing up in church was wonderful, but the negative impact it had on her prayer life
- what prayer perfectionism is, and why you need to let it go
- 5 simple benefits of prayer that you can miss if you stick to all the “prayer rules”- connection with God, peace of mind, guidance and wisdom, gratitude and perspective, community
- 3 ways to let go and let God: 1. We can let go and let God be our strength. 2. We can let go and let God hold us up in deep waters. 3. We can let go and let God provide the necessary wisdom.

31 Days of Prayers for the Heart
I love this so much. Since we lost our son suddenly on New Year’s Day this year, my relationship with God has changed. It’s been an amazing journey; one I never asked for but one that has changed how I relate to Him. Prayer is so different for me and has opened my heart to others needs. Thank you for sharing this and for the references and resources relating to our relationship with the Lord and how he loves and protects us in our deepest needs. 💕
I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your son, Sue. I can’t pretend to have an answer for that huge hole in your heart, but I know God is the answer to all our troubles. He reminded us we would have trouble in this world, but thankfully he also told us to take heart. He has overcome the world.
Many blessings to you. I’m so honored that you would allow yourself to be ministered to through the podcast.
