Nothing wears a Christian down more than the habit of prayerlessness. I say it is a habit because it develops gradually, and once established, it is difficult to erase. It is never abrupt when it takes it toll; there are always obvious signs that precede it--a disinterest in the meditation of Scripture, a lack of enthusiasm in fellowshipping with other Christians, a vague idea of the Cross and what it stands for, and an ongoing emergence of past sins in one's lifestyle. The appropriate response would be to come to God in prayer. Ask Him to search your hearts. "If there is any wicked way in me, lead me in the path everlasting."

I've also changed my template. I wanted to brighten it up, make it simpler and easier to read. What do you think?

Looks cool. It's sleek, uncluttered and to the point. I like it.

About your post, I couldn't agree more with what you wrote about prayerlessness. We don't realize it creeping around our necks until we start choking.

I heard once from my favorite expositionist: "When it is hard to pray, it is the time we need to pray the hardest."

But like you I suffer the same struggle with "prayerlessness".

I like the layout Lance, it's clean.
