If you’re looking to develop your prayer life, here are some tips. They worked for me and I hope they work for you too.
First off, you need to stop thinking of prayer as a straight-laced, military-regimented kind of exercise. Open your mind to God, see it instead as a conversation with your Maker, the One who owns the Universe, talk to God as you would a close friend and then, just flow. Tell him anything and everything.
Second, I believe it essential for you to know yourself and know your limit. A friend once told me of how she wanted to get serious with her prayer life and decided to go an hour a day. It didn’t work out eventually. You should know your limit, if you’re not a person who is used to prayer. Start small, maybe 15 minutes a day, then gradually increase your prayer time as you get better. I started with an hour a week, gradually I increased to 30 minutes a day, then 45 minutes a day and on and on. Prayer is a gradual process. Do not neglect the process.
Fellowship with the Holy Spirit is also key to enjoying prayer time. When the Spirit communes with you often (and this can take on several forms) you’ll find yourself looking forward to prayer time just to enjoy those blessed moments with Him.
Finally, I’ll suggest that you get a prayer partner. Someone who you’re comfortable with who can pray for you and you can also pray for, or you could even join a prayer group.
Try these tips and if you notice an improvement in your prayer life don’t hesitate to share your testimony with me.

When I originally started my blog, one question I was asked more often than not was where I find my inspiration.
Inspiration; my best friend and my greatest foe. There are days when I stare at my phone screen for hours on end looking for inspiration, while there are also times when it flows, like water down the stream, like the blood in my veins.
I find my inspiration in any and every thing. From the colour blue of the sky when I wake up early in the morning, to the crunch of gravel under my feet; beautiful breezes which make trees hug themselves, and the eagle that soars overhead. I find inspiration in the peaceful rushing of the stream and in idle banter on the road, the screeching of tires, the smell of smoke.
Being a writer is one of the greatest things in the world, I can paint images with my words, tug at your olfactory sense with my narrative and make you hear the voices in my head as though they were right next to you.
Inspiration is to be found in all things. In fact, it’s in the very air we breathe.
Find what inspires you and chase after it with a passion!
