I challenge you to write a prayer out in advance before you lead worship tomorrow.
I know... it sounds super unspiritual, right?
"I don't need to write my prayer out. That's not very authentic."
The thing is, when you write your prayer out in advance, you take it more seriously and have more time to consider WHAT you should be praying for. If we really think prayer is that important, shouldn't we be focusing more time on it than just a spontaneous prayer that we didn't prepare for?
Keep in mind: the goal of writing your prayer out is not to have a script that you need to memorize. Writing it out just helps you formulate your thoughts. After you have it written down, identify the 2 or 3 main points you want to pray for and, when you pray on Sunday, allow them to come out naturally.
Before you lead tomorrow, identify a spot in your service where you can pray and write that prayer out in advance.
