As a believer, you can overcome prayerlessness by finding a quiet space to pray, confessing your sins to the Lord, and surrendering your burdens to Him. If you communicate with the Lord earnestly, He will take up your hardships and worries and give you His peace, confidence, and strength to persevere (James 5:16).
3 Ways to Overcome Prayerlessness
1. Remove Distractions
Find a quiet space where you can spend time with the Lord without being distracted by technology, work, or anything else that may weary your mind. Meaningful conversations can only occur when there are no disturbances.
2. Confess your Sins
If your prayer life is weak or you have ceased to pray (1 Samuel 12:23) and you have come to depend on your abilities rather than the Lord, confess this to Him today. Ask the Lord for the forgiveness of any sin that may have prevented you from coming before Him in prayer.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. – Romans 3:23 (ESV)
3. Surrender your Burdens to the Lord
Give your worries to God; He wants you to bring your biggest burdens and even your smallest concerns to Him. Every care you have is significant to God. When you surrender them to Him, you are letting God know that you trust Him to deal with the matters that weigh on the heart. Trials and tribulations may not disappear instantaneously. However, God can sustain you during hardships (Psalm 55:22) when you cast your cares upon Him.
