Prayer Struggles

April 5, 2017

I think the prayers of others are more effective than my own prayers. I think, if I could just have the pastor pray about that. Or if I had a group of people praying with me, then the prayers could make a difference. But just me? Just my prayers? They aren’t very effective. They don’t really matter as much as other peoples.

Have you ever felt that way? Maybe we wouldn’t say it out loud, but deep down, you feel it, too?

I recently joined Jaime Hampton her Prevailing Prayer Podcast to talk about this and a few other topics. I know you are super busy, because I am, too. If you don’t have time to listen to the entire episode, check out 13:52-17:00. That’s where you’ll find the meat of it.

P.S. I interviewed Jaime last month about her prayer struggles on Candidly Christian here.

    Heather, I totally resonated with that prayer struggle! I remember once I was struggling with something and I deserately wanted someone to pray for me and called two people and neither answered. I felt like God was telling me “talk to ME!” I did, and God really showed up. Alana and I really loved having you on the show, thank you so much for sharing!

    […] P.S. There is no Candid Conversation video this month, because it was one of the things that fell apart that day. If you’re looking for a video, check out my interview on the Prevailing Prayer Podcast here. […]

    My struggle is with disciplining myself to pray every day!

    I caught myself not too long ago asking for prayers about a certain topic and then realizing I myself was not specifically praying about it! Isn’t that crazy? I was trying to let others do the praying for me without even realizing it!
