How Are You Going To Pray In 2016?

How is your prayer life?

I don’t have any hard evidence, but based on circumstantial evidence I think most of us have weak prayer lives. Oh sure, when things get tough we pray, but when things are good we quickly forget to pray.

Needless to say, I struggle in my prayer life and I’m guessing most of you do too. So what do we do to make our prayer lives strong?

First, we have to set aside time to pray. Sure, we need to pray at any time, but we also need to have structured time to pray. 

Next, we need some structure for our prayer lives. You might want to determine the areas of your life that you want to pray for. For example, I have divided life into seven areas such as family, financial, spiritual, career and so forth. These areas are broad enough to be be subdivided and envelope everything and everyone you need to pray for.

Finally, you need to just pray. You have to start. It won’t feel natural at first. Nothing usually does. You’re talking with the Creator of the universe. It’s a relationship. It will grow the more time you spend I prayer.

I hope your prayer life is strong now. I hope it’s even stronger in 2016.

    Mine is up and down. Even with keeping a Moleskine journal for writing and remembering, i still go up and down. I’d like to be more consistent with my prayer life in 2016.

    I talk to God, but I need to be still way more often. The Psalmist said, “Be still and know that I am God.” I struggle with that one.
