As children, we were taught to “say our prayers.” But as adults, does our prayer life consist of only memorized words? Or is it truly a conversation with God?
Dear God, sometimes I don’t know what to say,
and at those times my memorized prayers serve me well.
But I know that if I want a deep relationship with you
my prayer life needs to be deeper too.
Meet me where I am today, and help me talk to you about it.
Then quiet my busy mind so I can hear your side of our conversation.
Spend five minutes today in conversational prayer. Talk to God about what’s on your mind and in your heart. Be sure to leave enough time to sit quietly in his presence, so you can hear whatever he might want to share with you.
