There are situations in our life that are unusually hard to overcome. The usual methods of dealing with problems that we are used to do not work. No matter how hard we try. These are the times where we need to learn how to pray.
We can go to church every Sunday, do all the ‘right’ things but have no excitement about being in God’s Kingdom. We leave Sunday services to get into our worldly routine: work, school, kids where there’s little place for God.
