Praying in Spanish

A great way to practice learning Spanish is to pray in Spanish. After all, we know that the Lord will be patient with our efforts to learn a new language so we can better serve Him. It’s good to keep a running list of Spanish phrases (praises, confession, petitions, etc.) that you can use in prayer. Seek to pray through your growing list each day. Before long your prayers will be longer and your Spanish will be growing!
