What’s important? This will be in parts or series or section haha!, whatever we want to call it. so…. here we go with the first.
I believe we all have things in our lives that are important to us; our jobs, spouses, kids, family, friends etc. but what is more important than all of this. I also believe that we can have all this but if this one thing is missing, a lot of times things fall apart. This one thing is the glue that binds or keeps it all together for us. It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you’ve been, or what you’ve done in your life; you can use this glue to all your life all together.
You don’t have to be a minister or need a minister to pray. You can pray for yourself and by yourself. BUT…. inorder for your prayers to be effective, you have to believe it works. So let’s talk about different areas of our lives and how prayer affects them.
Praying for Your Dreams and Visions
We first need to pray for ourselves then we can pray for others. It is a blessing to take time out to pray for people, friends, family or even strangers. But if you haven’t been praying for yourself, how would you know how to pray for someone else. If you haven’t prayed for your dreams and aspirations how then can you pray for another’s dreams and aspirations. If you haven’t seen prayer work how can you have faith that it will work for someone else??
Praying persistently for your dreams, your visions, your aspirations are all very important. Even when it seems like our dreams or visions aren’t happening or that our prayers aren’t been answered, you should keep praying. Learning to pray is like riding a bike; you just have to get on and try it and keep trying until you get it right. We might need to change in our praying style, like instead of praying for something to happen a certain way, we might need to ask that God’s will be done not ours. If we are praying God’s will and not our will, He answers.
Remember God sees ahead, He knows our past, present and future. He already knows what the result of any situation is going to be even before it happens. So… why not let Him lead you and be rest assured that He will lead you in the right path.
Just pray for yourself today. Pray that God will lead you and direct your decision making today.
And if there’s anything going on in your life right now, pray for that too. (If you need someone praying with you on anything, you can send your request and we’ll join you in praying.) Believe in your heart and you will see God move.
