    Dear one,
    I was once unable to pray when I became a person that I didn’t like !

    I knew that I can’t continue living the the way of my old nature.

    I have been advised to wait on the Lord: if you can wait for a doctor, you can wait for God ! Though in our natural perception may seem nothing change, but spiritually God knew what I was doing. I try to draw near Him through Christ by waiting for His steadfast love. I would wait for an hour or three hours depending on the day. Eventually I gain the strength to pray. I start praying what is written in the Bible. Then I collect prayers from man or woman of God I respect whom I consider living a holy life. I just pray and pray. I pray a different types of prayer.

    What I can understand the desire to pray come from waiting on the steadfast love of the Lord. For His steadfast love or grace will strengthen our hearts to pray in accordance to His will.

    So dear one, wait for His steadfast love.

    This is what we have heard :
    The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him. -Lamentations 3:25

    Yes, dear one,let the Lord strengthen your heart.

    For this is what we have heard:
    The LORD is the strength of His people; He is the saving refuge of His anointed. -Psalms 28:8
    Oh, save your people and bless your heritage! Be their shepherd and carry them forever. -Psalms 28:9

    Do you have mental health issues?

    If you do your illness could be the cause of your feelings...

    As a whole, we never use feelings to gauge our relationship with God, feelings are subjective. As Christians we use what is objective...

    And sometimes that's just holding onto the promises of God that Jesus will lose none of those who God placed in His Hand. Do you believe that Christ is your savior?

    You can't save yourself, only He can save you. Rest in the fact He promises that all whom He began a good work in He will bring to completion. Trust Him, not self. All the promises of God find their yes and amen in Jesus.

    Hello Emily7584,

    "Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5).
    You do this by:
    "Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done" (Philippians 4:6).

    Cheers,
    Al A. Gammate
