Touching the Heart of God is the very essence of prayer. Whether we are petitioning God with very specific requests or consecrating ourselves before Him and rededicating our lives - whatever the case may be – the true essence of all praying is “Touching the Heart of God.” “The church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men…” – E. M. Bounds. Without this our praying reaches the realm of dead things - relics of past victories and experiences - nothing more. Prayer before anything else is relationship. If it reaches beyond this point – it finds deception.
