Are you devoting enough time to prayer in your life? After all, it’s a necessity. But if you are like many people, you may find praying difficult at times. Perhaps you get easily distracted or aren’t quite sure how to approach God in your prayer…or maybe you just keep “forgetting!”
Dr. Peter Kreeft has this to say in his excellent book, Prayer for Beginners: “What is the main problem with this prayer?
“Simply remembering to do it. This is embarrassing, because this forgetting is so foolish. Why do we forget? Clearly this forgetting is not merely a mental problem. There are mental blocks to remembering. Something in us fears remembering. And I think we all know what that is.
“When we do remember and call him, and he comes and acts, he does all the work, for free! Our part is only to call; the Great Physician makes house calls and charges nothing. And yet we continually fail to call him. Is this reasonable?” (Chapter 9).
