Pray Out Loud

I kind of feel like prayer is my “thing,” you know? It’s what I’m called to do, something I’m passionate about, yet praying out loud, in front of people makes me incredibly anxious. I trip over my words, or worse, can’t find my words. It seems messy. I listen to others pray out loud and …
