“‘Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.” - Jesus
Never worry about approaching God with your simple prayers and pleas. Our simple, child-like prayers, along with our heartfelt hopes, are all welcomed by God in the same way that Jesus welcomed the little children into his lap. God does not ask or require us to be eloquent or profound or even “mature” in our prayers and approach – and in times of crisis or need, we are stripped of such things anyway. Sometimes all we can muster is a glance heavenward and the words, “help.” It‘s okay. It is in the simplicity and basics of our human need, trust, and hope that we are most like little children. Approach the throne of God with your simple and heartfelt needs and requests – trusting in the love of God like a parent to a child, and know that you are welcome and beloved, just as you are.
Be well. This too shall pass. In the meantime we pray.
