"Have you forgotten that it is not natural to any one to pray? "The carnal mind is enmity against God."" - Ryle, A Call to Prayer
Prayer is not something that comes naturally to anyone. It is something that we will have to rouse ourselves to, against the flesh, from this point on until we are ushered into eternity. I have never found it simple and easy to turn to prayer. It seems I am always easily distracted, tempted to think in my materialistic way that prayer won't change anything. This is not because I'm just not the praying type. It's because none of us are.
