Prayer can be difficult for most of us. We fail to set aside adequate time, alone with the Lord so we can actually communicate with him. We also struggle to focus our minds and discipline our thoughts. The discipline of prayer helps us push past these hindrances so we can experience a richer spiritual experience with God in prayer. The best way to live in a continual attitude of prayer is to practice praying. Always try to incorporate prayer into other spiritual disciplines. Prayer centers us on God and opens our hearts and minds to receive the Holy Spirit's guidance.
