Turning My Cruise Control Off…

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Matthew 6:7

It seems that lately God has been showing me that my prayers need to be more authentic. I got to the point that I had typed out my prayers and all the people and situations I was praying for. I rambled through them, but was I really mindful of what I was praying? Well, God has shown me that I have to give up the prayer sheet, because I wasn't having authentic prayer with Christ.                                      
                                                            
 It may sound funny, but I like to have quick prayers when I’m in the bathroom. It’s allows me various times throughout the day to connect with my Lord. Again, God has shown me what I am doing. My praying is like I’m driving with the cruise control on. I’m going through the motions of driving, but while I’m doing this, I’m looking at the scenery and thinking about other things.

Now, I’m prayerful about God’s guidance in praying and turning my cruise control off. I want to be mindful during my prayer time and not just rattling off things without any real thought of what I’m saying. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Matthew 6:7

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
