Why I Write Devotions With Prayer
Prayer is critical in our everyday lives, so I write devotions with prayer every day. I’ve noticed in my own life that when I’m not praying, I get frustrated and tired more easily. I’m just not the same person. Maybe you’re the same way and want to make a change. Or maybe you’re always frustrated and tired and want a solution. Prayer may be your thing.
It can be difficult to know how and when to pray. Sometimes it’s easier to pray when things aren’t going right for us. As bad as it seems, it can be hard to pray when things are going right in our lives. This gets confusing and hard to navigate, which is why I always strive to encourage you in all of my devotionals. These devotionals are designed to help you grow in your faith in Christ. I want to be a guide – a coach – in your journey.
My goal is always to present short, Gospel-centric devotions with prayer that cover a variety of topics on a daily basis. To help you specifically in your prayer life, I’ve curated a small list of devotions specifically about prayer so you could find them more easily.
You can always find my most up-to-date devotionals on the Daily Devotions section of my website.
What is a devotion with prayer?
You can see more information about what a devotional is on my page called What is a Devotional. For the sake of this page, though, a devotional is simply time spent with God. That would mean that devotions with prayer are times spent with God that either end or begin with prayer.
Who are these devotions with prayer for?
My devotionals with prayer are for you and anyone you know! My goal is to not only provide short content for you to read before you start your day but to also help you discover how you can spend time with God each day. Beyond that, I also want to make the content easily shareable so you can be a source of encouragement to the people in your life as well.

How you can pray
Prayer is simply talking to God, so there’s no reason to overthink it. Just tell him what’s on your mind, and you’re praying! I know that starting off can be awkward, so I’ll close off this short section with a couple of encouraging words from Jesus himself.
- There’s a time for corporate prayer (together with your church) and private prayer. I’ll speak to private prayer for the sake of this page. Jesus tells us that when we pray in private that we should find a place where we can truly be alone. It’s there where we can be candid with God, and since he can see and hear everything, he will still reward you for your prayers. After we find a place to be alone, don’t ramble thinking the amount of words will be what influences God. It’s not the amount of words but the heart that matters here.
- If you’re looking for a place to start in your prayer, Jesus teaches his followers the Lord’s Prayer to do exactly that. You can use that as a jumping off point to start developing your conversational relationship with God.
The bottom line is to just start. You’ll be thankful you did.
