The Discipline of Prayer

1 Thessalonians 5:17 reminds us to pray without ceasing. But if you’re like most of us there are times when we sit down to pray and struggle for the words to say. It’s a little embarrassing to admit that I have an audience with the almighty creator of the entire universe, whom I’ve known for many years – I should have no problem opening my heart to the one who searches it inside and out (Jeremiah 17:10). Fortunately God is gracious and understands our frailty have all the patience in the world for us to mature in the spiritual discipline of prayer.

For those of us who could use a little direction in our prayer life from time to time, I found this great article online. You may read it and say, “My day is packed! Who has an entire hour to devote entirely to prayer!” Well then, start with a manageable chunk of time and work up to it. I think you’ll find it to be time very well spent.
