Over the past few weeks I have been struggling with prayer. I have been helping teach a class for new Christians and many of them have said that I can’t pray, I don’t know how to pray. My suggestion to them was to look at prayer as a conversation with God. Just talk to God.
I have been a Christian for over forty five years and have prayed in public many times. In my private prayers, especially over the past few weeks, I have been struggling to pray.
Recently, I spoke to a couple of friends about private praying, I asked them if they prayed orally or silently. The consensus was that they prayed silently. We discussed whether silent prayer or oral prayer was more rewarding.
Lately, I have spent some time just orally talking to God. It’s not with an outside voice as they teach to children but a low conversational tone. It felt good, real and powerful.
