15 Things to Pray About When You Don't Know What to Pray

As Christians, we know prayer is an important part of our relationship with God. It’s talked about many times in the Bible and I think we all have that natural pull to talk to the Lord.

However, the ability to pray isn’t necessarily programmed into our hearts and minds as soon as we accept Jesus as our Savior. Some people find it very easy to pray, while others do not. This can lead to a lot of doubts, insecurities, and roadblocks for growing in our faith!

If you find it difficult to pray in general, or maybe sometimes you just find a loss for words, I hope this list of 16 things to pray can help you become more confident in talking to God (even when you don’t know what to pray!)

In today’s world, we all face troubles, fighting numerous battles that can make the day-to-day more difficult than we would like.

Some battles are fought in the open, physically and for all to see. But other battles are more internal, sometimes never being known or acknowledged by others around us.

How to Be Thankful (Even When Nothing is Going Right)

It’s a fact of life that sometimes things just don’t go the way we would like them to. We’ve all experienced shortcomings, hardships, and journeys through the valley. Not every part of life can be spent on the mountaintop!

Jesus reminds us of this in John 16:33 where he says, “…In the world you will have tribulation…” However, there’s another verse (1 Thessalonians 5:18) that tells us, “give thanks in all circumstances…”

But such a commandment can seem so daunting and unrealistic at times, especially when life’s hardships are so painful. How could we possibly lift up thanks for such crummy circumstances?

4 Steps to Forgive Those Who've Hurt You

Forgiveness can be a sticky, tricky thing.

We know we should.. But we don’t always know how.

We know we need to.. But we don’t always want to.

Like seriously blocked me on all social media, stopped returning my texts, and basically never talked to me ever again! Harsh right?
