groups can grow your relationship with Christ, remembering that all your

being fearful to pray out loud around others, and it is something with
which many have struggled. You may have to pray out loud in front of
everyone at church, at the dinner table, in front of your spouse, kids,

praying out loud by yourself, and you will see it is not hard. Ask God
to help you. Rely on the power of the Holy Spirit. Continually practice,
be bold, be confident in the Lord, and your words will start flowing.
