"5 Bad Prayer Habits"

With help from Stephen Mattson, here are a few things to consider as we assess our prayer life:

Bad Habit #1: Cliches. We frequently try to swamp God with waves of spiritual cliches. Don't worry so much about sounding like someone else as you pray. Be yourself. Be honest. 

Bad Habit #2: Wish List Prayers. Beware of approaching God as a child appraoches Santa-with a wish list of demands.

Bad Habit #3: Talking Without Listening. Effective prayer is always a conversation. God responds to prayer, but how are we going to hear that if we don't listen?

Bad Habit #4: We Pray Alone. It can be very powerful, and very effective, to pray aloud, with others. We frequently neglect this fact.

Bad Habit #5: Inactive Prayers. Prayers without any follow-up action on our part are generally not effective.

No time like Springtime to break these Bad Habits!

In Joy,
Tom
