Bear one another’s burdens,
and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Does Your Prayer Life Need a Jump Start?
 
Consider These Prayer Tips:
1. Set aside quiet time to pray, maybe just a few minutes.
2. Begin by quieting your thoughts.
3. Talk to God. Have a conversation; it doesn’t have to be eloquent and flowery. Let God know how your day is going, ask for help, offer thanks, pause along the way to hear what God has to say to you.
4. Pray the Bible.  Read a few verses slowly and prayerfully, the Psalms are great for this. When we don’t know what to pray, the Bible can speak for us.
5. If being quiet doesn’t work, talk out loud or write out your prayers. Prayer journals can be great tools that then become prayer timelines where you can see how God has worked in your life.
