As much as we've learned about the numerous benefits of prayer so far in this podcast, you'd think it would always come easy. Sometimes we just don't feel like praying. Feelings should not be ignored. They are indicators as to what deeper may be going on within us that needs to be addressed. In today's podcast, we discuss some of the feelings that challenge our desire to pray so that we can find the faith to keep praying anyway.

Key Takeaways:
• In your feelings of grief and sadness, God is with you. He is not only with you; the Bible tells us He is close.
• Our struggle with doubt can often be rooted in our view of God and what we know about Him or what we don't know about Him.
• God is not mad at you; He is mad for you.
• When we feel guilty, the last thing we need to do is run from God, that is the time we need to run to God to receive the grace and forgiveness our souls desperately need.
