    Hey guys.. New here so forgive me for starting off with a prayer request.. But, as of lately I have been really struggling in my prayer time.. Due to the busy home life I spend the hour-and-a-half solo commute to work as my time with the Lord.. I've been doing this for a while now, but within the past few weeks its seems like my prayer time is very.. Dry.. (For lack of a better term?).. It seems I am stuck in a rut of prayer.. I do praise and try to focus on God's Grace throught my time praying, but lately it seems like I become easily distracted (crazy traffic, thoughts of the day before me, etc).. Until recently I found to be very enthusiastic and joyful when it came to my prayer time.. But lately its has almost become.. Well.. A burden? Is God trying to tell me something? I mean, I spend time in His Word on a regular basis, attend church and listen to Christian praise music.. But when it comes to prayer.. Its like I'm just speaking them for the sake of "praying" and not for the communion aspect of what prayer time should be?.. PLEASE PRAY for me! And any advice anyone might have for a whipper snapper like me would be much appreciated!!

    Hello and welcome.

    I can empathise with you as I have recently been going through something similar. Prayer can be hard sometimes I find and I seem to get a lot of interruptions when I want to settle down to pray. I am making a special effort to get closer to the Lord and I find that the Psalms help me, so maybe they will help you too? Please don't give up. I will be holding you up in prayer :praying:

    Blessings

    Thanks for your encouraging words following-Him..
    I know I'm not alone in this.. After all, we are mortal vessels trying to communicate with an Immortal God.. So it goes without saying that we are going to have our up and down times with such.. But thank you again! I will deffinately read through the Psalms and stay close to Him!

    I'm a younger whippersnapper and I have the same problems...sometimes I sort of shy away from prayer, for whatever reason.
