Four Lies That Keep Us from Prayer
Adapted from an article by Scott Hubbard. Rarely do I approach a set-aside time of prayer without thinking of at least one reason, and often more than one, to do something else instead.
"I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is thrown aside like a branch and he withers. They gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you.
