Just read/currently reading (and what has it taught you?): Currently reading Boot Camp Prayer by Jonathan Ferguson. It has taught me how to pray effectively.

Top three practical tips for staying spiritually strong: 1. Carve out time to spend with God daily. You can start with 10-15 minutes, but you have to talk to Him. He wants to hear from. Just tell Him about your day. 2. Attend your local church on a regular basis. 3. Incorporate fasting plus prayer into your lifestyle.
