Another year gone and now we are all a buzz with the worst word ever, resolutions! Do you make resolutions? I don’t! Why set myself up for failure on a certain date? But I do look back at my prayer life this past year and say it could be better!
I have really been struggling with prayer. I do talk to God all day but making my petitions known to Him is a place I struggle. I know Hes always looking out for me and I am always keen to listen but there I times I covet deep prayer. I long for my closet and a clear mind to just lay it all out to God without thinking of a project I need to do or the sink full of dishes. I long to write in a prayer journal, something I gave up on many years ago! (I tried; I am not a journal person!) I hope to grow more this coming year. I do know this was my best prayer year yet so as long as it keeps getting better each year I am good!
Another thing I want to be better about is asking for prayer. Oh, how hard is it to ask for prayer! Especially when it’s for my marriage, children, or something else personal that can easily turn into gossip. I tend to keep it between God and I as opposed to make it known. I need to grow in that area.
Where do you struggle? What is your strength in prayer? Your weaknesses? What do you want to change? Let me hear from you…. before the year is over!
