Latelly I have really been thinking a lot about prayer. Struggling through spending more than 10 minutes a day in prayer, struggling through talking with God. I do not know about you but my prayer life is pretty pathetic. I often justify my non-prayer life with the attitude that I am in constant commune with God everyday, when really the only reason I say that is because I am making an excuse for why do not pray or spend time praying. I get frustrated when other people prayer, I get annoyed when their prayers are long, I get annoyed because I want prayer time to be over with. I wish I knew why I think this way, and I am working on trying to think in a different way, but I have a hard time with this. I really do not know why I am writing this, probably more for myself, but also to see if I am not the only one out there who struggles with prayer, and I do not think that I am. I wonder how we as Christians have come to have a hard time communicating with God?
