“If God answered the prayers you have been praying, would it change anyone else’s world but your own?”
I read this question this morning – ouch!
It certainly made me think about what prayers I currently have.
Although God doesn’t need us (because He is all-powerful and all-knowing) He has chosen to let us help Him change the world through our prayers.
How and why – let’s be honest, our limited understanding can not comprehend, but the Bible shows us this reality over and over and as it says in the book of James:
“Our earnest prayers have powerful results” (James 5:16)
So we need to remember how Jesus showed us to pray in the Lords Prayer (God-Others-Us) as sometimes I feel I can rush into the day and not take the time to pray for everything on my heart and actually, I know that I can achieve far more through prayer, than trying to do anything on my own!
