I grew up Baptist and used to hear the prayers of the deacons during Sunday devotion. Man, did they pray long! I know their knees had to be hurting. But somehow they never got tired of praying.
I remember thinking to myself, I can’t pray like that. So, when it was children’s Sunday, you know what I prayed, the Lord’s Prayer. It was simple, straight to the point and only lasted about a minute tops.
I know some of you can relate!
Today, I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you I no longer think I can’t pray like that deacon I witnessed so many years ago. The truth is through much continuous prayer and training I learned to level up my prayer life just like the old folks.
