Day 18

I love the fact that we get our assignment from GOD in prayer. We can connect so that GOD can direct our lives. GOD wants to connect us to our assignment, but it will never come if you do not pray. Quit worrying about everything and pray! Quit. When you pray your prayer becomes the plug that plugs in to GOD’s resources.


I told one guy who was complaining about everything. Yapping about everything. I told him, “Sir, if you would pray more than you complain, you would feel a whole lot better and so would everyone else around you.”


Turn to your neighbor and say if you would pray more than you complain you would feel a whole lot better and so would everyone else around you.


Pray about your finances. When you do it becomes a plug that plugs into the connection in heaven to GOD’s resources. Pray about your marriage. Pray about your children. Pray about your needs. Pray about your burdens. Pray about your fears. Pray about your business. Pray about your career. Get in your car and instead of listening to the radio pray on your way to work. Pray about that day. Pray.


Take the plug and connect to heaven’s resources.


How often to I worry instead of pray? My friend, Tabitha, and I were discussing Philippians 4:6-8 earlier this week. 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God. 4:7 And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of respect, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if something is excellent or praiseworthy, think about these things. 4:9 And what you learned and received and heard and saw in me, do these things. And the God of peace will be with you. Why do I choose worry over peace? GOD has much more planned for me!
