How to Pray When You Don’t Feel Like It

Have you ever felt like giving up on prayer? Have you ever wondered if your prayers make any difference at all? 

If you don't feel like Praying, force it. Because something is also forcing you not to pray.

Hello, friends. I’m so glad you’re here today. I want to share a message with you that believe will bless your life and help you grow in your faith. It’s about the power of prayer.

You know, prayer is one of the most important things we can do as believers. Prayer is how we communicate with God, how we express our gratitude, our needs, our desires, our praises. Prayer is how we align our will with God’s will, how we receive his guidance, his wisdom, his peace. Prayer is how we tap into the supernatural power of God, how we release his favor, his protection, his healing, his miracles in our lives.

But sometimes, we don’t feel like praying. Sometimes, we’re too busy, too tired, too distracted, too discouraged, too angry, too hurt to pray. Sometimes, we think our prayers are not heard, not answered, not effective. Sometimes, we doubt if God really cares, really listens, really loves us.

But let me tell you something today: If you don’t feel like praying, force it. Because something is also forcing you not to pray.

The Bible says in Ephesians 6:12 that “we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” You see, there is an enemy who doesn’t want you to pray. There is a devil who wants to stop your communication with God. There is a force of darkness that wants to silence your voice of faith.

Why? Because the enemy knows that when you pray, you are powerful. The enemy knows that when you pray, you are victorious. The enemy knows that when you pray, you are unstoppable.

That’s why he will try everything he can to keep you from praying. He will try to make you feel guilty, unworthy, ashamed to come before God. He will try to make you feel hopeless, helpless, defeated by your circumstances. He will try to make you feel angry, bitter, resentful towards God or others. He will try to make you feel busy, stressed, overwhelmed by your responsibilities.

But don’t let him win. Don’t let him rob you of your blessing. Don’t let him steal your joy. Don’t let him destroy your destiny.

Instead of giving in to your feelings, give in to your faith. Instead of listening to your emotions, listen to God’s word. Instead of following your flesh, follow the Spirit.

Force yourself to pray. Even when you don’t feel like it. Even when you don’t know what to say. Even when you don’t see any results.

Just pray.

Pray with confidence that God hears you and loves you. Pray with expectation that God will answer you and bless you. Pray with persistence that God will work for you and through you.

Pray until something happens.

Pray until your feelings change.

Pray until your situation turns around.

Pray until your breakthrough comes.

Pray until your miracle manifests.

Pray until your victory is complete.

Pray until your destiny is fulfilled.

Pray until your purpose is accomplished.

Pray until your glory is revealed.

Pray until your joy is full.

Pray until your peace is perfect.

Pray until your love is overflowing.

Pray until your life is transformed.

Pray until your world is changed.

Pray until heaven comes down.

Just pray.

And I promise you this: If you force yourself to pray today, tomorrow you will be glad that you did. Because prayer changes everything. Prayer changes us. Prayer changes others. Prayer changes God’s mind.

So don’t let anything stop you from praying today. Don’t let anything keep you from talking to God today. Don’t let anything hinder you from connecting with God today.

Force yourself to pray today.

And watch what God will do in your life tomorrow.

Amen? Amen!

Type AMEN if you believe in prayer.
