Prayer Changes Things and You
And everything—whatever you ask in prayer, believing—you will receive.
Matthew 21:22 HCSB
Is prayer an integral part of your daily life, or is it a hit-or-miss habit? Do you "pray without ceasing," or is your prayer life an afterthought? Do you regularly pray in the solitude of the early morning darkness, or do you lower your head only when others are watching? The answer to these questions will determine the direction of your day—and your life.
So here's your challenge: during the next 100 days; make yourself a prayer warrior. Begin your prayers early in the morning and continue them throughout the day. And remember this: God does answer your prayers, but He's not likely to answer those prayers until you've prayed them.
You don't need fancy words or religious phrases. Just tell God the way it really is.
We must pray literally without ceasing, in every occurrence and employment of our lives. You know I mean that prayer of the
heart which is independent of place or situation, or which is, rather, a habit of lifting up the heart to God, as in a constant
communication with Him.
Elizabeth Ann Seton
I need the spiritual revival that comes from spending quiet time alone with Jesus in prayer and in thoughtful meditation on His Word.
Anne Graham Lotz
Prayer moves the arm that moves the world.
I pray to You, my Heavenly Father, because You desire it and because I need it. Prayer not only changes things; it changes me. Help me, Lord, never to face the demands of the day without first spending time with You. Amen
