prayerConfession time, I struggle with busyness. I am told often that I am too busy. My wife tells me. My co-workers tell me. My family tells me. My own conscience tells me. While I know being busy is not equal to being effective or productive I find the actions of my life revealing otherwise. Recently, it has become clear to me that busyness is not just keeping me hectic it is also keep me from something I desperately need each day. Prayer! And it is when life gets so busy and prayer seems like such a slow down that I truly need it the most. However, it is during these times that I struggle with what to pray, even though there are a multiplicity of things that need prayer in my life. I hope this list of Seven Ways to Pray for Your Heart aids and encourages you as it has me today.

As always, be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!
