I just got back from Pastor's School/ Educator's Convention. It was such a great blessing. I got to hear many great men of the faith and attend hands-on classes in different areas. My biggest problem in my Christian life has always been prayer. I try very hard to do what I know what I should do but I fail everyday. I say the quick God bless my food prayers and I ask God to help people who need help but I don't seem to be very good at having long conversations with God.
One of the sessions I attended was entitled "Why You Hate To Pray" by David Gibbs III. He talked about the reasons we hate to pray and I suddenly understood something. I wasn't the only one. I am just like everyone else. Bro. Gibbs said, "The only way to have a great prayer life is to have a great prayer list." This struck home to me. I will be working on a great prayer list. I already have many things I pray for everyday but I need a more detailed list. A list that pinpoints the areas of life that really need help. I am so thankful that God showed me how to talk to him and I can't wait to get started on this great journey.
