Do you know how people say they feel like their prayers aren't getting past the ceiling? What they're really saying is that they aren't experiencing the relief that comes when we let go and truly give it to God. So what do we do? We double down, pray harder, pray longer, or engage in spiritual warfare.
Maybe we're praying wrong? Could it be that we don't need to pray harder, or longer? Could it be the whole reason we're not experiencing the relief we desire is that our hearts aren't engaged in the prayer process? or that we're fighting the wrong battle?

Heart Engaging Prayer © is an intimate form of prayer. It doesn't replace other forms of prayer, it actually enhances your times of prayer.
Do you know how you may keep asking for forgiveness long after you've been forgiven? The problem isn't the sin, it's the shame we feel. Heart Engaged Prayer© allows God to reach the shame that got embedded in your heart and then release you from it with a word spoken to your heart.
Have you ever prayed and bound the enemy to no avail? Maybe you're not in a spiritual battle at all. You could be binding something when God has actually designed the thing your facing for your spiritual growth. If that's the case, Heart Engaged Prayer© will allow God to reach the part of your heart that needs nourishment so you can grow. If this is the case, then embracing the work God wants to accomplish is your best option. In order to grow, the seed needs to be implanted in your heart. The seed is implanted as we sit and listen to what God is saying and it impacts us at a heart level.
Why do you think God tells us to love Him with our whole hearts? It's because he wants to connect with us at the heart level and spirit to spirit. He wants an ongoing connection with us as much as we crave that heart-to-heart connection with him.
This is the felt experience and fulfillment of Matthew 28:20
