I don’t think I pray enough. I know probably everyone says the same thing, even those who spend hours praying every day. I wish I spent hours a day praying.
I hate to admit it but most of the time, I seem to forget about praying. Except at meal times. We always pray before we eat. Often as I fall into bed at night I’ll have two thoughts run through my head:
- Did I brush my teeth at all today?
- Did I pray at all?
I usually fall asleep praying. It used to bother me but then I thought it was the best way to fall asleep. I was concerned God would think I found Him boring, or that I found myself boring. That is not the case anymore.
I am not a fan of praying out loud anywhere, even with my family. When it is my turn to pray out-loud my mind goes completely blank. Something about being in the presence of the Creator of the universe gets me all tongue tied.
Part of my problem is I am almost fully convinced the others in the room are judging me based on my praying ability.
Another part is I know satan can’t read my mind but he can hear my voice. I’d rather he not know what I’m praying about. He has enough ammunition to use against me without any help from me.
How is that for crazy?!
So do you have any tips for me?
