Struggling With Prayer! Something To Think About!

Prayer, talking to the one who made you and knows you from the inside out! Spending time alone with the Lord may come easy to most but not to me boy, I struggle.

When I get up in the morning the first thing I do is head to my little cubbie hole where it’s nice and quiet and read my bible. While I read I talk to the Lord about the things He’s showing me in His Word, and usually He’s showing me things that I need to get rid of in my own life!

My problem comes when I feel like I need to sit down and talk to Him one on one. The Lord says to be still and know that He is God. Well, I know He’s God, but it’s hard for me to be still! It’s like I’ve got ants in my pants!

Jesus, the Son of God always meandered off to a quiet place and He spent time alone with God in prayer. He was focused and He remained still as He spoke to His father.

Luke 11:1 says, “And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.”

My prayer is this, “Lord, teach me to be still so that I can learn how to pray like you did!”
