As Christians, prayer should be a constant part of our lives but because of busy schedules, it may not always be possible to keep our prayers consistent. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to get back on the right path. Here are a few things you can do to ensure a constant flow of prayer to get closer to God:
Be sure to plan out your prayers on your calendar or make a note of them in your diary. When you treat prayer as an important appointment or meeting, you will be more likely to keep it. While you may not be able to keep up with your schedule all the time, you will find yourself praying more when you see it on your calendar.
Having a list can keep our prayers more specific and full of intention. When you think of the people, problems, and blessings you have in your heart, you’ll find that it’s easier to start praying. Keeping this list in a phone or journal will allow you to celebrate with a full heart when they are answered.
This may sound too simple but having the intention to ask God for help allows you to make time for consistent prayer. According to James 1:5, “The Lord gives wisdom to those who ask and God will help those who come to Him.” Make use of this promise as God is willing and more than able to help you with anything you are facing.
Once you get started with the suggestions above, be sure to keep up with your commitments. Try to schedule your prayers every week, keep making a list of things you’re thankful for, and always ask for God’s help whenever you’re in trouble. While it may take a while to make new habits stick, stay consistent with your prayers and allow them to bring you closer to God.
Remember: “It’s the Situation Keeping My Connection with Him”.
