A lot of people consider prayer and Bible reading to be like the two big spiritual disciplines. And I think that idea makes sense. Reading your Bible is receiving Word from God, and prayer is talking to God. It’s basic communication.
So, today I’d like to do something different on this blog. I would like to have a discussion in the comments so I can hear from you and so you can share your thoughts.
The question for this discussion is the one in the title: Which has always been easier (for you): prayer or Bible reading? That is, has it been easier to build the regular habit of prayer, or the regular habit of reading the Word?
Other optional questions to answer are:
- Why do you think this is the case?
- If you could change it to be the opposite, would you?
- Has this tendency gone back and forth throughout your life, or has it remained the same?
- Have you been able to learn and practice both? If so, please share your tips for others to do the same.
I will be giving my answer in the comments, so go there to see it, reply to it, and comment your answer.
I’m hoping that we can all get some good perspectives from other people and that through it, we’ll be better readers and pray-ers.
To get more people involved in the conversation, please share this post on your Facebook. Thank you!
