As we are led by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit to change our lives, it is important not just to stop doing things that lead us away from God, but to put something positive in its place. Spiritual disciplines have been used throughout history to train Christians in righteousness and deepen their walk with the Lord.

Prayer is communicating with God to help us know God, hear from God, express dependence on God and engage with Him in accomplishing His purposes in the world. I encourage you to set aside some time in your daily routine to intentionally talk to and listen to God, cast your cares upon Him, and receive His comfort and guidance for your life.
