What if your prayer life was a little bit better?

When people mention prayer, often Christians start feeling some guilt about the state of their prayer life.  They might remember hearing a sermon from a great prayer warrior or reading a book about a fantastic intercessor.  And then the immediate reaction is - I could never be like them - not with my life and all the things going on in it.

The guilt about our current prayer life and the seeming impossibilty of being really good at prayer can join together to paralyze us and we try and forget about it as soon as possible - distracting ourselves with something else.

But what if we spent a few minutes to think about what our prayer life would be like if it was just a little bit better?  Maybe you have seen some small thing in some other Christian that you would like to have a go at imitating.  Maybe you can remember something you used to do in the past.  The key is to look for something Good but small enough that you don't get paralzyed at the thought.

It is like the hint about starting something you don't want to do - cleaning, finances,.....  If you have trouble getting started - just set yourself to do it for 5 minutes and see how much you can get done in that time.
