How to Pray

How is your summer going?

 

This morning I was reading Max Lucado’s email devotional that arrives daily in my inbox. In it, he says: Prayer is a habit worth having. Don’t prepare to pray. Just pray. Don’t read about prayer. Just pray. Don’t attend a lecture on prayer or engage in discussion about prayer. Just pray.

I wanted to say: YES, Max, I agree.

The best way we can learn about prayer and master how to pray so that it becomes a healthy habit in our lives, is to do prayer.

Practice prayer.

This summer, my daughter, back from college, has been joining me for my morning Prayer Zone Workouts. We walk, talk and in the silence, we pray.

During the month of August, I encourage you to do prayer. Why not grab a friend, and go for a walk together? Talk with your friend, but when both of you are silent don’t be tempted to fill the gaps with more conversation. Spend those moments in individual and silent prayer with your heavenly Father.

I would love to know how you get on. Let me know.
