Tag Archives: How to Revitalize Your Prayer Life

Welcome to “Pray-ers Anonymous” a group for prayer quitters!

Prayer

Have you given up on praying because it’s too hard? Too boring? You don’t know what to pray?

“Hi, my name is Sandy and I’m a prayer quitter!”

 I’ve even written a book on prayer, but sometimes I admit I don’t want to pray!

And then comes the guilt, the self-doubt, the lack of faith.

If you’ve ever experienced these feelings, welcome to “Pray-ers Anonymous” — a group where we can be totally honest about our failure to pray and even about our lack of desire and motivation to pray! Our members include pastors, Bible teachers, missionaries and average Christians like us.

Come explore with other believers how to revitalize your prayer live!

Do You Have Trouble Hearing God’s Voice?

Prayer should be more than a one-way conversation, but if we’re honest, our prayer life is usually just that. We run through a list of our needs or the needs of others and rush off to our day. We find it difficult to wait on God in prayer and listen for Him to speak to us.

A recent article in Parade Magazine, “What Your Nose Knows” revealed some interesting facts about our five senses, in particular, our sense of hearing.

This constant bath of noise affects everything from our concentration to our health.[i] Continue reading
