Only the most spiritual of people would say that they ALWAYS feel like praying. And I’m not sure I would believe them if they did! All of us sometimes don’t feel like praying.
Sometimes you may be so exhausted that prayer just feels like one more thing to DO, and you have absolutely no energy to do even one more thing. Sometimes your mind feels confused and you wouldn’t even know what to say if you tried to pray. Sometimes the Why questions feel too difficult, and trying to pray would mean struggling with the exhausting challenge between doubt and faith. And sometimes, truthfully, you may feel angry at God because of some loss or grief or pain, and you just don’t want to talk.
Whatever the reason, sometimes you just don’t feel like praying. And if someone says to you, “Pray about it” at one of those moments, they’re the one who might end up needing prayer!
So what do you do with those moments? Is there an option other than living with the guilt of not being “spiritual enough?”
Yes, there is.
