Prayer is a tough one hey? I myself struggle from time to time – and if I am honest with myself, it’s because I am not intentional enough about it.

Just as we need to set aside time to read the Bible, we need to set aside time to pray. Maybe those 10minutes we spend on Facebook or Youtube we could spend praying. Be yourself when you pray, God knows who you are, He made you, you don’t need to be someone else when you’re speaking to Him.

Prayer links us to God like nothing else. Let’s get to know Him more through prayer.

Read what Pauls says here in Ephesians 6:18 (



Read Romans 10:1 (

Have you ever made a new year’s resolution? For 2019 I am making a commitment to contagious faith. Over the next five days we will journey together through Romans 1 and you too, might choose to make a similar commitment.

In verse 1 we see Paul praying that the Jews would be saved. How often do you pray for people to be saved? I hope my faith might rub off on others but I rarely pray for those people to know Jesus personally.

Perhaps make a list of three names who you want to come to know Jesus, set a reminder on your phone and commit to praying for them daily this year.



Pray like you mean it

We all struggle in our prayer lives. I’m really selfish and like to pray about all the things that matter in my life like my money and my health and my wife and our future. Jesus gives us a different picture of prayer in Matthew 6:10-15, read it here:

Instead of a focus on ourselves and our needs, look at how much is about God, and others. Maybe today you could follow Jesus’ example of prayer and think less about yourself.



David wrote, ‘As soon as I pray, You answer me.’ (Psalm 138:3) You can face the best of days and the worst of days knowing that, because God never takes His eyes off you, the millisecond you think a prayer, or whisper or sing or cry out to God, He hears you, and He answers. That doesn’t mean He delivers the goods instantaneously or exactly the way you think He should, but He is busy lovingly working out His best plans for you.

If it occurs to you today to reach out to God, don’t put off praying. He longs to hear from you, and He’ll listen and answer without delay.
