From Jim LaCroix in an email to some friends. Very helpful.
This morning I was listening to James MacDonald on Walk in the Word...and he
provided his 5 tips to an awesome prayer life. I thought they were great,
so here they are:
1. Get alone
3. Outline: Go through this progression:
4. List: write it out or journal
5. Aloud: say them out loud. He pointed out that when you are talking you
cannot get distracted as easily as when you are just thinking prayers. How
often have you started thinking a prayer, and then all of a sudden caught
your self thinking about something else...instead of praying!
