Prayer Changes Things

At times we have worries, debts, children who are out of control, a job that just doesn’t pay the bills etc. etc. and we try to take it upon ourselves and fix these things instead of taking these things to the alter for God to fix them. Why? Why do we do this time and time again with the same results, either it doesn’t fix the problem or it fixes the problem temporarily and it repeats itself over and over again. How many times do we have to fall and try to fix our own selves up before we realize that we have a MIGHTY God who can do all things? We have a God who is waiting to hear from us. We have a God who loves us more than ourselves. We have a God that is merciful. A God that can make a way out of no way. Why keep it to ourselves when all He wants us to do is pray about it. He wants us to first acknowledge who He is and believe in His abilities so He can help us in our walk on this earth. We need to stop cleaning up our own messes on our own and start taking these messes to the alter. Praying is easy. All you have to do is talk to God. Tell Him what’s on your mind. Here’s an example of a quick prayer in times of worry and stress:
“Father God I need your will in my life. Please mold me and shape me so that I can handle any problem that comes my way. I know I need you Lord. I’m so tired of doing things my way with the same results. My way has failed me time and time again so I give it to you because I know you’re a God that never fails. A God that knows what’s best for my life so have your way with my burden oh Lord. In Jesus name I pray Amen”
If we could pray just a simple prayer like this with a sincere heart what a wonderful life we would have! Stay encouraged, be blessed and know that God loves YOU!!
