Praying aloud with others is a tangible way for you to carry your load – and bring encouragement. If it’s hard for you to pray aloud in a group, begin by doing it when you pray alone. Then start praying aloud with a friend. Don’t compare your praying with others.
William Gurnall wrote: “Sometimes you hear another pray with freedom and fluency, while you can hardly get out a few broken words. Hence you are ready to accuse yourself and admire him, as if the gilding of the key makes it open the door better.”
(Ruth and Warren Myers; 31 Days of Prayer, p. 94)
