I KNOW I SHOULD PRAY MORE. BUT HOW?
Find out what prayer really is and why it is LIFE to your soul. It’ll take you 15-mins. Then DECIDE that you are done with playin’ about prayin’.
If you don’t decide, nothing will change.
CROWD OUT THE NOISE
An overcrowded mind will kill your prayer flow like nobody’s business! You don’t need to empty your mind in order to pray, but you do need to fill your mind with the kinda stuff that encourages prayer.
A noisy mind will drown out your voice, and God’s. You can’t avoid all disruptive stimuli, but you can choose what gets into your heart!
1) Create a prayer timetable and set up your prayer focus per day. Helps to avoid those awkward “uh dunno what to pray for” moments.
2) Attend a weekly prayer online or in person, or ask a friend to be your prayer partner. Praying with people keeps you accountable.
Prayer is no ritual or a ceremony. It’s an ongoing heart-to-heart chat with a real and VERY PRESENT God who looks lovingly into your eyes, holds you and speaks to you.
Talk. Then listen. Then talk. Then listen. Heart-to-heart. Share your life. Then do it again tomorrow … and the day after … and after …
As always, I end this by saying, I am Coach Toyin, fully convicted by my own words and very much still under construction in the hands of the Father.
