I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting (1 Timothy 2:8.)
Someone once said, “I always feel reluctant to pray. How do I get free from this?” It’s just like someone who feels reluctant to eat.
If you don’t eat, then you’ll lose weight and become malnourished. But there’ll only be a change when you choose to act wisely by eating right. Same with prayer; when you feel reluctant to pray that’s when you should pray.
Remember, God has given you the power of choice, so you have the power to choose and exercise wisdom by acting on your knowledge of the importance of prayer.
This kind of wisdom is a force; it’s more than ability. You can have the ability to do something and not do it.
But true wisdom is that you know what you should do, and you do it! So let that wisdom function in you at all times and cause you to do what’s right, like choosing to pray.
Prayer is your life’s work, and the best way to learn to pray is to pray. Culture yourself to do this, whether or not you feel like.
Jesus said in Luke 18:1, “men ought always to pray, and not to faint;” He didn’t say, “men ought always to pray when they feel like”.
