The Connection Between Purpose and Prayer
By Rick Warren

“‘I know what I am planning for you,’ says the Lord. ‘I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you a hope and a good future. Then you will call my name. You will come to me and pray to me, and I will listen to you’” (Jeremiah 29:11-12 NCV).

God is good, so by nature, he cannot do bad things. Everything he does is good. And, because he is good, God’s plans for your life will always be good.

God didn’t have to create a plan for your life. He could have just let you be born and wander around aimlessly.

But God made you with a purpose. He gave you a plan for your life. 

Jeremiah 29:11-12 says, “‘I know what I am planning for you,’ says the Lord. ‘I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you a hope and a good future. Then you will call my name. You will come to me and pray to me, and I will listen to you’” (NCV).

Do you see the connection between prayer and God’s plans for your life? They are revealed and realized through prayer. 

The more you pray, the more you’re going to understand God’s plan. When you pray to him, he promises to listen, answer, and reveal more of himself to you.
