Ephesians 6:18 ” And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.”

Any outreach you do must be built and maintained on/by  prayer.  But for some, their concept of  prayer is to only take a certain posture, using certain words.  Or for others, their concept of prayer is to beg and plead before an intimidating and menacing  judge.  Prayer should be as natural as breathing.  It’s a continuous running conversation with a close friend and confidant.  So maybe instead of using the term prayer – you could use the word talk.  Talking to God is a much more non-threatening idea.  You’re conversing and consulting with your friend not some ominous power out in the cosmos.  Having an ongoing conversation with God during the day will enable you to focus on what’s eternally important while quelling the world’s incessant chatter that’s filling your head.
