Praying can be the most difficult when we need it the most. Here are three ideas to help you pray—even when you don’t feel like it!
Take a prayer walk. No agenda. No lists. Just tell God what’s on your mind as you enjoy some fresh air.
Doodle. Let your mind wander as you think about God’s promises to you. Use a pencil, chalk, or even crayons to begin the creative process. Whatever you are facing, God is able to guide you through it.
Pick up the phone. Call that special person who you know will pray for you. Often, letting someone else pray helps you break through the times when you just can’t get started. Even Paul asked his supporters to pray for him during his struggles.
Try these tips to move forward when your prayer life seems to need a jump start!
