When You Can't Even Pray

5 things to do when you feel too sick, discouraged, confused, frustrated, or distracted to pray. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible #Biblestudy

Have you ever felt so discouraged that you couldn’t pray? 

Chronic health problems, broken relationships, death, discouragement, or other hardships can make it hard to concentrate in prayer.

So what should you do if you find yourself in this situation?

1. Ask God for help.

Romans 8:26: And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.

2. Ask a friend to pray with you and share encouraging Psalms (Ephesians 5:19).

3. Pray prayers found in Scripture.
See: 6 Good Prayers from the Epistles and 10 Good Prayers from the Psalms.

4. Listen to familiar hymns or praise songs and sing along.
See: Music Appreciation.

5. Recite Scriptures you’ve memorized in the past or read your favorite passages (Hebrews 4:12).

When you're struggling, these things can help.
