Prayer life or lifeless?

“So keep at your work, this faith and love rooted in Christ, exactly as I set it out for you.” 2 Timothy 1:13

How is your prayer life? Mine is so-so, when considering the amount of time I spend intentionally praying. Much of my praying simply happens by walking (or working) and talking to God.

I leave the petition part of my prayer time for bedtime. Depending on how tired I am and how fast I sleep, I may only pray for my immediate family, my mother, brothers, Glen’s family, and the President and his family. (I always pray for the President–regardless of who it is–because he needs it more than my immediate family.) When not so sleepy I include everyone else I care about–my pastors, friends, and of course, those who protect our country, community, and homes. I pray for the ill, the grieving, and the confused.

If you would like me to pray for you, please let me know. I’ll be sure to lift them up after my first cup of tea in the morning when I’m wide awake!

Lord, may the prayers from my lips and from my quiet times with you be equally heard. Amen.
