Pockets on our hearts

My sister Hannah gave me a post card on which she doodled the above. She was kinda messing around cos we often chat about how prayer is more than just words and have a little joke about the fact that she carries a picture of Dizzee Rascal in her bible, as her prayer for him. She always says that she 'carries people in her heart' and that is partly how she prays for them. We joke about how we should have little pockets on our hearts so that we can put photos of people we are praying for in them. Despite the joking, there is some truth in it though... and her way of praying seems to be real and work... and is probably more meaningful and true than prayers which are just words that tumble out without much thought. So, i propose we all stitch pockets on our hearts and start carrying people on our hearts before God!
"Prayer is the soul's sincere desire, Uttered or unexpressed; The motion of a hidden fire, That trembles in the breast. Prayer is the burden of a sigh, The falling of a tear; The upward glancing of an eye, When none but God is near." - Rev George Philip M.A.
