Your prayer time ever get, um, (what’s a word that doesn’t sound TOO unspiritual here …) stale? Monotonous? Ever lose your train of thought? Feel like you’re saying the same thing you did yesterday … and the day before that? It’s OK. Happens to everybody else.
There are lots of ways to pump new moxie into your prayer life. HERE’s a previous blog if you want some other insights about sprucing up your knee-mail. But have you ever considered praying “head-to-toe?” I’ve got you covered today, literally. So here goes:
