I do a lot of talking to God throughout the day- as the person or situation comes to mind. I catch my mind wandering and myself getting tired at night too.
What helps me is a prayer list or journal to keep up with requests. If you see some requests on c-moms, you can just open up a file under word or notepad....anything like that, and then just check them every time you turn your computer on. I have a section on e-sword that lets you make a prayer list, and that's what I like to use.
One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organizations do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always.
