“In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
You have to feel… empty prayers (or hopes) with no heart or feelings behind them don’t show a dedication or need. But if you really fill your heart with the feelings of what you need or want it means so much more. I think in some ways it is like the power of positive thinking… if you don’t put your heart into it, it likely will not happen. Everyone can be more heartfelt about life… it doesn’t cost a thing and could gain you so much.
