Prayer can be tough. The concept and practice are simple enough, but it takes discipline. We know it’s important, but life is overwhelming, and our prayer lives are often the first spiritual exercise we abandon. But as we’ve been saying, prayer has an inherent anti-jackass quality. It pulls us away from our self-importance and self-reliance. It puts us in a position of humility where we come to God with our needs. It puts us in a position of relationship where we come to simply speak with God.
So while nurturing your prayer life can be difficult, it’s absolutely worth it.
So what do you do if your prayer life is either non-existent or could use some revitalization? We have two quick suggestions.“Prayer has an inherent anti-jackass quality. It pulls us away from our self-importance and self-reliance. It puts us in a position of relationship where we come to simply speak with God.”
First, we encourage you to utilize the Echo Prayer app. It’s a free app that organizes your prayers, allows you to share your prayer requests, and reminds you to pray at key times in your day. This could be a game changer if you need a little organization or prompting to jump start your prayer life.
Second, we encourage you to work through one or all of the devotionals linked below. We were able to help Echo Prayer create these devotional plans via the YouVersion Bible app. They don’t take long to read, but they will help you get back to the heart of prayer.
