How do you pray?

Everyone struggles with something at sometime.  Relationships, career, children, parents, tasks, health etc.  Mine are many and diverse.  What’s in front of me right now is prayer.  As a follower of Christ,  I’m ashamed to say my prayer life had been drier than the Sahara, narrower than a mouse trail and about as consistent as a politician’s truths.  As I read over Proverbs 3 this morning I am struck with how I have not been trusting in the Lord with “all”  of my heart and how I have been leaning on “my own” understanding. This prompted me to ask for help through prayer.  Hence my stall.  I’m tired of the shallowness and repetitiveness of my prayers.  How do you pray? Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

Proverbs 3:1-2
My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity.
