Here are the Answers to Your Prayer Excuses

Do you make prayer excuses? Don’t lie. We all come up with creative ways to avoid doing what we know we should do—pray! In this week’s show, I share some ways to respond to ourselves when we are tempted to make up excuses for why we aren’t praying more. The excuses we cover:


  1. I don’t have time.
  2. I will do it later.
  3. I get distracted.
  4. My family is almost never all home at once.
  5. I don’t know what to say.
  6. I’m too tired.


Do any of these sound familiar? Let’s resolve together to accept no excuses to remember the right answers to these excuses and revive our prayer lives this summer! Drop me a note and let me know how it’s going for you.


I also share some feedback from David on a previous episode, and answer a question about making friends from listener Erin.
