For example, when I use this method and get to “hallowed be thy name” I begin thinking through the names of God and praying thanks for His greatness.
Another helpful take away is this: don’t try to pray long elaborate prayers a much as you pray shorter meaningful prayers, and pray them often through the day.
Let’s pray our way into 2016.
