Prayer

My internet connection is moving slower than a snail today. It has taken me forever just to get to my blog site.

Today's devotional from Tozer has hit me right between the eyes:

To pray successfully is the first lesson the preacher must learn if he is to preach fruitfully; yet prayer is the hardest thing he will ever be called upon to do and, being human, it is the one act he will be tempted to do less frequently than any other.

God Tells the Man Who Cares, 69.

I confess that this is one discipline I struggle with. Oh, I pray. But I would not consider my prayer life to be one of my strengths. I would welcome any feedback as to how you incorporate prayer into your life.

I talk to God a lot during the day. For me, it is an ongoing discussion. I think that is a form of prayer. At least I consider it to be. I tend not to be one that carries on a long conversation with God or people. I do pray every morning when I wake up and when I run in the mornings. Although I would not say I am 100%, this is a pretty constant thing for me.

But I must confess, I too, feel like, my prayers are often pretty weak. Here I am with access to the Almighty Creator and Merciful Father through the intercession of my Savior with the Spirit as my translator, yet my discipline is lacking and my faith is often stale.

On the flip side of that, I will say I have been bold enough to ask God to do something great for His kingdom that my eyes may see and He has often delivered in noticeable fashion.
