Learning to Pray Aloud

Praying together

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)
