I Don’t Feel Like Praying

Proverbs 29:8 says if a person doesn’t read the Bible that their prayer is an abomination to God. Yikes! That is a pretty strong statement by King Solomon. There are eleven more reasons given in the Bible for why God doesn’t answer our prayers, and in fact doesn’t even listen to them. If those reasons exist in our life and God is not answering or listening to our prayers, we know it in our hearts. Something in us feels that our prayers aren’t accomplishing much. If we sense that God is not answering our prayers we won’t pray much. It is sort of like continuing to talk on our cell phone after we realize that we have been cut off on our phone conversation because of poor service.

If it were me feeling unmotivated to pray I would figure out why and fix it. Apathy towards prayer is an unhealthy place to be, and we don’t want to stay there, but many do.

    @Patricia Hollenbeck. Get yourself a new Bible perhaps a KJV but I think all bibles have verses about prayer and storying Gods word in the heart
