Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. (Colossians 4:2 NIV)
Do you ever find yourself in a prayer rut? I know I am in one when I realize I am praying the same prayers over and over, and when prayer starts to feel like another daily chore to check off my list.
When I start to feel my prayer life hitting a wall, I remind myself that prayer is communication. I take a step back and ask myself what my prayers are communicating to God. When I’m in a prayer rut, I usually find that my prayers lack depth. I may be in the habit of asking God for things (on behalf of myself and others) but not thanking God for the many joys and blessings God has given me.
When we have conversations with friends or loved ones, we share not only our needs and concerns, but also our hopes, dreams, joys, and frustrations. God welcomes us to have this same depth of conversation with Him.
Gracious God, help us to share our whole selves with you through prayer – our needs and concerns, joys and hopes, fears and worries. May we always remember to thank you for the blessings You have shared with us.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
