Mark Daniels, at his blog, "Better Living Thoughts from Mark Daniels," had a great quote of the day posted:
"We should pray with few words but with deep, meaningful thoughts. The fewer the words, the better the prayer. The more the words, the worse the prayer. Few words and deep meaning are Christian. Many words and little meaning are pagan." [Martin Luther]
See Jesus' words in Matthew 6:7-8.
