When You Don’t Know What to Pray
Do you ever feel like your thoughts are distracted or your words are disjointed when trying to pray?
Years ago, I remember feeling like I didn't know how to pray, so I didn’t pray very often. I just didn't know what to say to God. Yet, I wanted my prayers to be powerful, and I wanted faith to believe God was big enough and cared enough to accomplish what I was asking for.
One day a friend told me about the power of making the words that we read in the Bible into a prayer. She said when we pray using God's own words, we pray for what He wants. I really liked that idea and it gave me a sense of direction.
Then I remembered that the Bible says the words we read in it are alive and active. So, I knew that when I use words from the Bible as a guide for my prayers, I can expect God’s words to become active in the lives I’m praying for, including mine.
