The Two Question Prayer: When You Don’t Know How to Pray

<VIDEO: The Two Question Prayer by Joshua J Masters>

What should you pray when you don’t know what to say anymore? What do you do when you feel like you’re out of prayers? As a pastor, I’ve had a lot of people tell me they’re tired of praying.They’ve asked God to change their circumstance, fix their relationships, or transform their lives—but they still don’t feel connected to God.

I’ve experienced that same drought of divine intimacy myself, and it’s often because I’m focused on an outcome rather than my relationship with God. During those times, I’d obviously tell you I desire a closeness with God. But in reality, my heart and actions would reveal a secret hypocrisy. Is it possible that we feel disconnected from God—that He’s not answering our prayer because we’re asking the wrong questions?

What if we changed the focus of our prayers from us to Him? What if we simply asked God two questions:

What are You doing today?
And how do You want me to be a part of it?

As we pray those two questions, we should remember to spend silent time after each question listening for an answer. How can that change our hearts? Solomon wrote:

…in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
-Proverbs 3:6 (NIV)

When we focus on what God is doing instead of what we want, we naturally move away from our own perspective and start seeing His. As we begin to change that perspective, the light for our own path becomes clear.

Are you in a place of spiritual drought?

How can a change your perspective effect to what God is doing your relationship with Him?

  3. Jean Wilund says:

    I absolutely love this. Every time we make something about us and not about God, we’re not going to be able to see our circumstances correctly. Thanks, Josh!
