Do you ever find it difficult to teach others how to pray? Prayer is simply talking to God, but if it’s so easy, why is it so difficult at times?
Let’s talk about a few key factors for teaching others about prayer.
The devil is our biggest problem. He knows that we move the heart of God when we pray, so he’ll try to distract us. Satan will whisper negative thoughts in our minds to make us feel unworthy. He’ll even try to make us doubt God really hears and answers our prayers and try to convince us that we’re too busy. Don’t allow the enemy to keep you from praying. Make a choice to pray and just do it!
The best example Jesus gave us for praying is The Lord’s Prayer. We begin prayer with thanksgiving to God for who He is and all that He is doing. We pray for God’s will to be done in our lives and for Him to meet our needs. We pray for God to forgive us of our sins and then end our prayer with thankfulness to God.
The most important thing we can do is teach others how to grow closer to God. Don’t allow the enemy to intimidate you and make you feel that you can’t teach others. God wants to use you.
