I'm not afraid of admitting my faults. I'm not afraid to admit that I'm not a perfect Christian. And I'm not afraid to tell you there is no such thing as a perfect Christian.

I'll be honest. I have felt a bit out of touch with the Lord. I focused a lot of concentration on Lent, but came away realizing that I didn't spend much time in prayer. I need to work on that. I often find myself praying as I lay down at night or as soon as my alarm goes of in the morning, only to fall asleep mid-prayer. God deserves so much more than a sleepy, unstructured prayer. Or I may begin to pray and have a conversation with the Lord, only to see something shiny and lose my concentration. Feeding My Temple was founded on a prompting from the Lord, then name even comes from scripture. I consider my faith to be the foundation of who I am.

So, I ask you today-how do you make prayer a priority? Same time, same place each day? Use a devotional? Read some scripture and pray about it? Have you struggled with making prayer a priority? Or is prayer a part of you life just as brushing your teeth each day is?

I definitely agree that there's no such thing as a perfect Christian! In fact, I used to think that the only way to be Christian was to be perfect or at least pretend to be perfect...and that just isn't what it's about all!

I've made prayer more of a priority, and turning to God for advice a lot more but I must admit, that I could probably take more time to read scripture. I find praying in the moment is better than praying before sleep for me...but it's all about finding what works for ya!

I feel the same way with sleepy prayers and how God deserves so much more than that. Thank you for this reminder. :)

Wow. You are right, "God deserves so much more than a sleepy prayer." I've never thought about it but all my prayers are sleepy as well! I'm going to focus on doing better! Very inspiring, thank you.

Excellent advice. I try to keep a continual "prayer dialogue" going throughout the day, but I just feel like its not enough. Thank you!

Thank you! Hopefully we can all get a little better at this!
