Have you ever felt guilty about your prayer life? I have. Iâ€™ve read books and listened to sermons about prayer, and known I donâ€™t measure up to the standard being presented. But trying to pray â€œrightâ€ is a misnomer. It would be like having a conversation with your spouse â€œcorrectly.â€ We donâ€™t do that. We just talk. Prayer is the same thing. We shouldnâ€™t be worried about saying some special words to make God happy, or to convince him to do what we would like to have done. Instead, prayer is about a relationship â€” like talking to your spouse or a close friend.
