Prayer Struggles

Prayer Struggles

Romans 8:26 says,

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 

I struggle with prayer, so this verse gives me hope. I find tremendous comfort here knowing that God knows my concerns, which mostly revolve around my family if I’m honest. 

Many times I fall asleep in the middle of my prayers since I admittedly don’t pray without ceasing as we’re instructed to do.

These days I set alarms throughout the day reminding me to pray. I find the devil is close at hand making me feel guilty because praying doesn’t come naturally to me, but I feel God’s love just for the efforts and the desire to move closer to Him – even if it requires multiple reminders per day. I’m trying to get better at it, but it’s a constant work in progress.

God Bless.
