Daily Bible reading and prayer is a struggle for many evangelicals

New research has shed light on the difficulties evangelicals have in making time for their spiritual life.

In particular, the Evangelical Alliance's study found that evangelicals struggle to find the time for both reading the Bible and praying each day.

Of the over 1,500 surveyed, nearly all (90 per cent) said they read the Bible regularly, but only 31 per cent said they set aside a substantial period of time each day to pray.

Although 87 per cent agreed that every Christian needs to spend time alone with God on a daily basis, and that without ...

Stat, it would sound like an audio Bible would be the perfect thing for you, e.g.,NASB Audio Bible mp3, You would really be able to put that time on the road to good use

Phillip, we really do need to have a time with God everyday to read and meditate on the Bible and pray. I know where Gordo is. I was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, AL and had cousins that lived in Reform,AL.

We live in a busy society; as parents, we made the decision early on to inspire our kids to read daily; it's called, training up a child in the way they should go. It's easier to do something when it's a habit. On top of that, as my kids got older, and I got them cell phones, I send out a daily "Thought of the Day" for them to wake up to. Not only does it continue to ground them, but it also challenges ME to come up with something new every day.

A Christian is never out of the presence of God and prayer can be moment by moment seeking guidance for the day....people will always come up with ways to make you feel guilty because you are not doing this or that....AS THEY DEFINE IT.

That's ok for those who follow the heretics Westcott and Hort.......
But
Real Christians are led by the Spirit to use God's Word the King James Bible.

As for "struggle with prayer"
All true prayer in the Holy Spirit will be a struggle and conflict both within and within this fallen world for the regenerate sinner and Satan will see to that, - IF it is true prayer.
That's the sign of true prayer.

Hey, I got a screen saver just like that.
I haven't even got that, Barry.

But I would also love a log cabin beside a creek, with plenty of fresh fish to eat, painting, fishing, praying, serving the Lord in whatever way. But here I am, and here I'll stay, just as the Lord leads.

Thanks for the reminder, Chris.

We need to be "watching and praying", waiting for the second advent, much in prayer, keeping close to the Lord, witnessing to the lost, serving the Lord seeing as we call him Lord, preparing for an eternal heavenly delight, denying self and taking up a cross, wholeheartedly standing for the Lord, putting all our treasure into heaven where our heart is, glorifying God and enjoying him for ever. It's enough to make one fall over with the sheer joy of it all.

Quite true. We make time for those things we want to make time for and consider to be important. It's called prioritization.

"Although 87 per cent agreed that every Christian needs to spend time alone with God on a daily basis..." only 87%?

Maybe so, John, but in this hustle, bustle, fast paced world, there is so much to do, so much to look at, so many distractions, and not to mention the endless quest for more, more, more, priorities are all mixed up. I think that these days, the biggest culprit is technology. The internet, smart phones, and social media has people addicted, enmasse, to the point that they actually need councilling to break free. Give me a cabin out in the woods with a running stream, scenery, wildlife, supplies, a bible, etc, far, far away and I would be content.

Maybe a lot of the Evangelical Alliance's "evangelicals" will find it hard to pray because they're not born again.
