There isn’t a cookie cutter formula when it comes to prayer. Some sit or kneel, and others stand or walk. Many speak out loud, while others whisper quietly. Some pray with friends, while others choose to pray by themselves.
No matter how we choose to pray, prayer is essential for a follower of Jesus.
Just as a relationship with your best friend would soon turn sour if you stopped speaking, so too will our relationship with God. Prayer invites us into constant communication with God so our relationship with him can flourish.
But, if we’re honest, there are times in our relationships with God where prayer can feel flat, rote, or downright lifeless.
