2 Do not be hasty in word or impulsive in thought to bring up a matter in the presence of God. For God is in heaven and you are on the earth; therefore let your words be few.
This verse is a little humorous to me, but as all the word of God, it very concisely helps us understand our place before the Lord our God, our Savior. He is Spirit, and we are flesh, He is in heaven, and we are on earth, so our words are few.
More profound for our souls is that “your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.” Matthew 6:8b
We pour out our hearts to the Holy God of the universe because through His mercies, His plan, the sending of His Son, and His sacrifice open our way into His throne room and His promises make us know He is listening, and He will answer.
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
(We pick up part b pretty abruptly, but it is the finish to Jesus Teaches Prayer - Vain Repetition 2 a)
As you young people say, we have a new “outro” and praying the Lord will expand our prayer community.
