Prayer isn’t crucial because it changes God but because it changes me!

Simple, heart felt prayers where I ask God to be with me, have an amazing way of filling in some really big gaps in my life.

When I pray, I see things more clearly. I realize perspectives otherwise beyond me. And, I gain wisdom that can override my frail humanity. Sometimes when I pray I feel confident that I’m right, or am convicted that I’m wrong.

It’s interesting that in order for God’s peace to rule in my heart as mentioned in the Bible… I have to spend time with God!

Praying helps me do just that. And the really beautiful thing about praying for God to be a part of our day is that it can start at any time. Even right now.
