In life, we have ups and downs, We experience successes and we also undergo failures. At times we are encouraged, and sometimes we are discouraged. We attain happiness and also endure sadness.
What are the things that we can do to go with the flow? What would be our way through it?
The answer is none other than PRAYER, Do you know that prayer can change everything. It can move mountains. The impossible can be possible with God. We should pray to God, who knows everything, whose plans are to make us prosper and veer us away from harm.
Jeremiah 29:11-12 New International Version (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
He is always there to listen. Through prayer, we can ask the Lord to watch over certain areas of our lives that need help or blessing. God will work on prayers on our behalf. He answers our prayers depending on His plan. Sometimes, we see the struggles as negative; but God is just using them to make us strong, for us to learn to call on Him whenever we are in need and to trust in Him.
We also pray to build our relationship with God. Remember that in a relationship, communication is a key factor. When we are praying, we are talking to God. If we love God, we would want to spend time talking to Him even before the day starts.
I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me.
