Having trouble praying?  Then tell Him!  Lean on Him, trust in Him, and know that He is using even those prayers you may deem worthless to mold your prayers into His will.  Keep praying!

Thanks! It's so true that a person can actually pray about praying Smiley

Thats a great scripture in Romans you gave me. Thanks  Cheesy

Sometimes people can just go through dry spells. It is ok. Maybe you are going about it wrong? When and how do you pray? Do you read your bible and/or worship him in conjunction with it?

I use to read my bible heaps but kinda got out of the habit. To me, praying is just conversing with God - no right way or wrong. Although I don't feel my prayers sound right, I know that God still accepts childlike prayers, imperfections and all. But I fully agree, that reading the bible and worship should be part of communicating with God.

Actually, maybe the real problem is not wanting to be honest with God about how I feel sometimes.
(I can get kinda angry with God bout things that seem so unfair) And not wanting to hear what he has to say in case it hurts.

That may sound pathetic but when you've been hurt alot in life, it's hard to be vulnerable.

The key is not to base your assessments of God's love on your own assessment of yourself or your circumstances. God's greatest servants suffered the most, because it made them the most sanctified and fit for service and the kingdom of heaven. If you tell us more about why you feel this way, it can help us help you, too. But these are the most common reasons.
*hug*

Thankyou for the encouragement. It does help to know that even the greatest of God's servants suffered also. Maybe I'm too much of a perfectionist when it comes to prayer. When I'm by myself praying, it never sounds right and I can't get out what I want to say. I have alot of fears in my life that I know get in the way of me knowing God intimately so that adds to the problem.   Sad

Don't be so sure.

Sorry? Don't be so sure bout what? About the fact that my christian walk is always a struggle or that "normal" christians only struggle sometimes?
13  Entertainment / Music / Re:What's your favorite Christian band? on: September 22, 2003, 04:28:36 AM

Some of my favourite groups are:

Phillips craig and dean
matt redman
Jars of clay
POD
Third day
Kutless

It may not be what you want to hear, but being a Christian isn't always sweetness & light.  Sometimes it is a struggle.

My christian walk is only bout struggle. Undecided

I do realise though, that being a christian isn't always sweetness & light for anyone, all of the time. But I think there is a difference between what i'm experiencing and a "normal" christian who struggles sometimes.

I guess what i'm after is some practical insight and help.
