Take a Minute to Pray

Take a Minute to Pray
By G. E. Watkins
It’s Monday morning and you’re a Christian. If you think about it for more than a minute there’s a good chance that you feel inadequate in your prayer life.
For some reason Christians don’t apply principles that work in all other areas of life to their spiritual lives. No one expects a new father to know what a grandfather knows. No one expects a rookie ball player to know what a veteran knows. Yet, for some reason Christians read about Jesus praying all night, and, knowing that they can’t do that, just give up on prayer as a regular part of their lives. They end up only praying in emergencies and at the dinner table. What are those principles that Christians don’t apply?
1.Start with the basics.
2.Practice them regularly.
3.Seek regular improvement.
I’d like to see anyone make the argument that God requires more. Look here:
“Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” (1 Peter 4:11).
God doesn’t expect more than your ability
