They say that prayer changes things, but does it really change anything?
Does prayer change your present situation or sudden circumstances? No, not always, but it does change the way you look at those events.
Does prayer change your financial future? No, not always, but it does change who you look to for meeting your daily needs.
Does prayer change shattered hearts or broken bodies? No, not always, but it will change your source of strength and comfort.
Does prayer change your wants and desires? No, not always, but it will change your wants into what God desires.
Does prayer change how you view the world? No, not always, but it will change whose eyes you see the world through.
Does prayer change your regrets from the past? No, not always, but it will change your hopes for the future.
Does prayer change the people around you? No, not always, but it will change you—the problem isn’t always in others.
Does prayer change your life in ways you can’t explain? Oh, yes, always! And it will change you from the inside out.
So does prayer really change anything? Yes! It really does change everything!

Prayer, So True! Beautiful!
I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from ALL my fears.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed.
This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of ALL his troubles.
The angel[a] of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him,
And delivers them.
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their cry.
The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of ALL their troubles.
The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.
I just can say: AMEN, it does!!!
That is a beautiful way of looking at PRAYER and a whole new dimension for me. Thank you for opening my eyes because I, and I know quite a number of others, believe in answered prayer of the petitions brought before God and in majority of cases I will complain why God is not answering.
This teaches me to look hard into the situations that I bring before Him in prayer.
Thank you for the message! Great insight about the power of prayer and how it changes our outlook on the things we pray for and gain God’s wisdom at the same time.
