You close your eyes, bow your head to pray, and then … nothing. After a few minutes, the day’s to-do list starts running through your mind. Your phone dings, and ooh, and look at all those notifications on Instagram! It doesn’t take much before your prayer time has come and gone without speaking a word to God.
Lots of Christians struggle with prayer. Many of us grow up hearing about prayer but never learning to pray. Others of us grew up in churches where the only time we prayed was during a call and response or when we recited the “Our Father” together.
Prayer is powerful, but it doesn’t have to be formal. Prayer is simply talking to God about what’s on our minds — from our to-do lists to our friends’ latest drama. We believe prayer is a constant part of how we live as believers. Whether together in a church or small group setting or in the quiet moments of our individual days, prayer is front-line communication with God. Put simply, there is power in prayer!
