The Christian prayer life can sometimes feel stale. It doesn’t mean your faith is weak, or that you’re doing something wrong—so don’t get hung up on it! It just happens. But if you want to connect with God and don’t know how to pray, or simply don’t feel like praying…then these everyday prayers are for you.


God, Open My Eyes

Does God really exist? It’s a question we all struggle with sometimes. And for those of us who, most of the time, come to the conclusion that ‘yes, God exists’—we still struggle to experience God or sense his presence. 

But maybe we overcomplicate what it means to see God or feel him or be with him… Maybe he’s hardwired his presence and his love into the very things we see, feel, and hear each day. If that’s the case, we just need God to open our eyes to see and our ears to hear his voice and sense his presence in our everyday lives. So that’s what we’re leaning into today—a scripture and a prayer that reminds us God is present all around us, every day, and even now! 

P.S. This would be a great prayer to print out and take with you on a walk!

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).

A Prayer for Finding God in All Things

Walk with me, Creator, in the cool of today. Point out to me those things you’ve made for my pleasure and my nourishment. Show me the people you are inviting me to know, to care for, and to defend. Draw my attention to the subtle hints of your beauty, your glory, and your power. As I wander, fill me with wonder and worship at your presence. Amen.
