A healthy prayer life is hard work.
If you’re one of those Christians who finds your prayer life to be easy, joyous and endlessly fulfilling, we’re grateful for you and the role you play in the body of Christ. But that’s not the way it is for most of us.
Pastors are not immune to struggling with our prayer life. In my experience and conversations, plus almost every poll taken about the prayer lives of ministers, pastors who struggle with prayer are in the majority.
So if you’re a minister who is less than satisfied with you prayer life, I hope it helps to know you’re not alone.
Prayer is really hard for most of us. Including me. And I think I know why.
Prayer is hard because the results are long-term.
