Many of us have an uneasy relationship with prayer. It’s as if we believe we have this huge prayer deficit and we’ll never catch up. There are times in our lives when prayer comes easy: when we need to make a pivotal decision or when we’ve hit a tough stretch. In these seasons, prayer comes naturally. But eventually life settles in and we go back to our normal routines. For most of us, prayer is something we know we should do more of and so we feel guilty. What would happen if we prayed more in the second half than we did in the first half of this year?
We all have hopes and dreams of what we want to accomplish. One of those hopes we collectively have is to live a life of purpose. However, we will not live a life of purpose by accident. It’s only going to happen if we live with a plan.
