Practical Prayer

by Joseph Yoo

On paper, praying seems easy enough. But, when we try to pray daily, we sometimes realize that it’s much harder than we’d thought. In fact, it’s usually easier to come up with excuses not to pray than reasons to pray. And the most common excuse seems to be the busyness of life. But a vibrant prayer life doesn’t have to be an elusive goal; because at its core, prayer is simply talking and listening to God. Using passages from both the Old and New Testaments, Joseph Yoo takes a look at how and why we pray, how to handle what we perceive to be unanswered prayer, and how to learn to hear and recognize God’s voice.
