Prayer Matters

I came across this image sometime ago, and it really spoke to my heart. If ever you doubt that your prayers make a difference in the lives of people around you, remember that it does! Perhaps this picture – which I found on a social media site several months ago – reminds you of how powerful and valuable prayer is.

[By the way, I am not advertising anything here. I simply liked the image.]

I am so grateful for the people who have prayed for me over the years, and continue to do so. And I am also thankful for the privilege of being able to pray for those in my circle of influence. Understand that I’m no professional pray-er or anything; I simply try to talk to God in the same way that I would talk to another person, and share honestly what is on my heart (even the things that seem small!).

Not only does prayer work, but it can be very powerful, too. I believe that the Lord answered all of our prayers, but often in ways we don’t expect. Also, the answer is not always in the affirmative, contrary to what our hopes may be.

Regardless, if ever you’re doubting the importance of prayer in your life, take a moment and look at this picture one more time. Your words matter, and they may potentially change someone’s life (even if you never become aware of it).

Dear Lord, what a privilege it is to take everything to You in prayer. Sometimes, it can feel awkward and a little strange, but I believe it if I approach prayer as a conversation with YouSomeone I cannot see but nonetheless know is there – then it becomes an easier thing to do. 

Also, remind me to release any particular expectations that I may have about the outcome; I trust that whatever way You choose to answer will be appropriate for the situation(s) I am facing. In Your name I pray, Amen.

      1. Hi Daily. Actually I haven’t seen him in about 3 weeks now, which is really unusual. It’s not that we’ve been avoiding each other, we just haven’t crossed paths. There’s an underlying anxiety about whether or not he’ll be aggressive when we do at some point bump in to each other (it’s pretty much inevitable living in the same building!). He’s still playing the music really loudly whenever he feels like it.

        Thanks for asking, I really appreciate it 🙂
