Overcome the Real Struggle of Dry Prayers

Daily Devotional

Psalms 100:2: Serve the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing.

You do not have to struggle with dry prayers anymore, what is required is for you to reposition yourself in the spirit by singing praises to God.

A major issue that believers have to contend with is that of having dry prayers. When this happens our prayers lack flow and as a result we could find that we are repeating ourselves. In response some persons end their prayers abruptly. Dry prayers happen when we are praying from a fleshy place, but the scripture advises us to pray in the spirit. 

Psalms 100:2 advises two keys to get us to the place where we can pray in the spirit. The first is to serve the lord with gladness. What that means is that when you go to God in prayer, you should go to God with a heart of gratitude and praise. That was further reinforced in verse 4 where it says enter into his gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise. The second key is to come into his presence with singing. Out of a heart of thankfulness and praise, start your prayers with worshiping God with singing. What will happen as a result is that after a while you will find yourself in his presence for you to then pray from that place. In some cases it may take you only a few minutes to be repositioned in God’s presence, at other times it may take much longer. Be willing to do what it takes: there is no greater thing than having intimacy with the father. 

Life Application: Start your times of prayer with singing praise and thanksgiving to God.  

Prayer: Lord, I praise you for who you are. May I entertain your presence daily and seek to dwell in your presence all the days of my life. In Jesus name,amen.
