Dead Prayers I am tired of mumbling dead prayers. Even worse, my fears of praying dead prayers to others is something that plagued me for years. In our bible study session tonight, where we were focusing on prayer, we had a great discussion that sparked my desire to share with you.
Four steps to overcoming fear of praying in public “Please don’t pick me. Don’t pick me. Don’t pick me!” I lowered my head down in fear as watchful eyes scanned the room and the mantra of “Don’t pick me” chanted in my mind.
