Prayer

My husband forwarded an email he received from his colleague. I find it relevant, what with me being too busy at work and with my course including the requirements that go with it. Please read and pray.

PRAY

Pray when you don't feel like praying

Pray when you're weary & worn...
Pray when the burden grows lighter
Pray when it cannot be borne ~
Pray when things seem impossible

Pray 'til the answer breaks through...
Pray if it seems an eternity since God moved His hand for you ~
Pray when the sun is shining

Pray when the storms appear...
Pray when the Lord seems distant
Pray when He seems very near ~
Pray in the congregation

Pray in your closet there...
Pray with a heart of thanksgiving
Pray when there seems no prayer ~
Pray in and out of season

Pray on your knees or stand...
Pray when you're heavy~hearted
Pray when you're feeling grand ~
PRAY for God promised to answer

PRAY 'til the answer He sends...
PRAY in the name of JESUS FOR GOD'S WORD IS YEA & AMEN !

Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah. But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him. ( Psalm 4:1-3 )

Here's my thought for the day.
When you don't know what to do, praying is the answer.


I agree with my husband's colleague. Prayer is the answer.

I always pray when I feel lost in all my troubles. It helps me find my way back.

and surely the way back is more satisfying but humbling. what do you think?
