Praying Like We Mean It

Praying is usually one of the last disciplines we master. Have you found that true in your life? God's people can share their faith with others, open God's Word to read and study it with delight, and even stand up to teach or offer devotional thoughts on a passage from its pages. But praying is another animal, isn't it? Devoting ourselves to prayer in private can seem boring and unhelpful because it may not yield tangible and immediate results. However, if we pray in faith—like we really mean it—the benefits, tangible or not, will be more than apparent.
