Change Your Prayers

change your life

Christians pray. Not as often as they could. Probably because they haven’t received the answers they want. Nonetheless, God does answer prayers. He’s just picky about which ones.

Sometimes our prayers are just our whining and complaining. About how everyone else is making our life miserable. Our words are too often filled with negativity and despair. It’s time to change that. Instead …

Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. Elijah, for instance, human just like us, prayed hard that it wouldn’t rain, and it didn’t — not a drop for three and a half years. Then he prayed that it would rain, and it did. The showers came and everything started growing again. James 5:16-18
