Just like everyone else, I find my prayer life seems to go in cycles. I sometimes feel so convicted and have such a desire to hear from God that I spend more time praying throughout the day.
Then other times I can barely pray without my mind wondering off in several different directions, only to find myself trying to re-group and FOCUS.
I think we all go through stages, but even when we are weak God is ALWAYS there. He hears you. Be persistent in your prayer life. Push through the days that you struggle with praying. That is usually when you need it the most.
When you're so overwhelmed with everything that's going on in your life, just cry out to Him.
Praying will take away all the stress. He will carry your burdens for you.
So stop what you're doing, follow the example of Jesus Christ and go to a quiet place to talk to your Father in Heaven. He is waiting!
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God , which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."~Philippians 4:6-7.
