It is only fitting to begin a post on building a strong prayer life with a prayer.
I’m here. I want to spend the next few moments with you so you can teach me how to pray. Open my heart to receive you in this moment and bring me close to you. I want to love you, Lord. I want to deepen my relationship with you. I want to experience a desire for you like I have never experienced before. Teach me to pray. Teach me to pray like you prayed. Teach me what it is like for prayer to be breath and life, strength and sustenance, courage and rest. Teach me to seek prayer before and above all else. Lord, teach me to pray.
