Prayer can fall through the cracks so quickly. We get busy and we just forget. Things come up and praying just seems to fall by the wayside. Sometimes, we still “pray” but those prayers are the mechanical words we throw our before dinner or bed. We neglect the important time spent sitting still in God’s presence, with his word, making ourselves better. Rarely do we find ourselves meditating on his word and allowing it to saturate our hearts.
Maybe this year you need to spend more time in prayer. It doesn’t have to be hours. It doesn’t have to be a big thing to do, but maybe 5 minutes in the morning or evening. Maybe you just need to sit for 3 minutes and let God work on your heart. You might not think 3 minutes is a lot but you’d be amazed at what God can do with that.
