How To Pray for Beginners: A Step-by-Step Guide
'Plan to pray at least three times a day' says Golden Prayer author Edward Weiss
"Morning, afternoon, and evening should all be times put aside for prayer," says Weiss. Here are three steps to making prayer life a daily practice.
Step One - Morning
In the morning our minds, though seemingly clear, have been through much. After the cobwebs clear, it's a good time to connect with God. To start the day with this connection is the best possible way to start it! We take a prayer, work with it until we feel God's presence, and then rest. We have made contact and are rejuvenated with the spirit of the Lord. Now, the day can begin with confidence.
Step Two - Afternoon
In the afternoon we are usually busy, going about the day. Yet this doesn't mean we should put the world before God. God always comes first, hence, we take the time to pray. Not much time is required here. A minute or two is fine. Again, when we feel God's presence our work is done.
Step Three - Evening
Evening time is rest time for most on the planet. It's the time when our work is done and we can finally unwind. This pleasant routine doesn't have to be interrupted by prayer. It's before we go to sleep that praying is a good idea. Once again, we pray, make conscious contact with God, then retire, happy that we are becoming closer and closer to God.
Of course, the question comes up; 'What if I pray and don't feel God's presence?' A valid point. The answer is, you did the work. There are times we try to connect and can not. We all know these times. The idea here is never to force, never to try and take the Kingdom by will. This can not be done. We persist with prayer and our efforts are rewarded. We persist with prayer, and we move that much closer to God.
