The Burden of Prayer?

Often we consider prayer to be a burden. Yes, it is hard word and it does require discipline. Yet, as we pray, God can bless us with his presence and joy. Consider what the ancient St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153) said...

"Prayer is a wine which makes glad the heart of man."

It may take a few minutes of struggle before the gladness comes to our heart. It may even take longer. Yet, it far worth the work to get to the point where we are filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit.

Let us continue praying for revival.
