Prayers do work

Prayers do work…

 

So much has happened in my life, when I think of it I sometimes don’t know how I got through it all, all I know is I believe in the power of prayer.

 

Prayer gets me through, faith keeps me going, my belief that it will get better, that great things are coming that makes me get up each and morning. Knowing where I came from, how far down I’ve been, gives me a heart of gratitude.

 

Last week while talking to a few friends, about how hurt I’ve been these last weeks. They all mention how blessed I was, how when I ask for something God listens, even when I don’t ask I receive his goodness, like my house, getting it and how I was able to gut and remodeled the whole thing in 30 days. They named a bunch of other blessings I have received these last 3 years.

 

So my girlfriend says maybe this is your calling, maybe you can pray for others, give God’s favor over their lives. She said pray every day for 5 people, a specific prayer and in thirty days see what happens and so I decided to try it.

 

I prayer for 5 people, of course I prayed for my girls, that they would find their self confidence their dad keeps ripping from them, I asked God to open their hearts, and fill them with his presence, to let them come to him, to church…to feel the peace I have.

 

Yesterday my youngest called she was at her dad’s and she was crying, she’s been lost and hurting lately, I told her I was on my way to church, did she want me to come get her. I never thought she would say yes, she never says yes…but as I keep saying never give up hope…she said yes, I turned the car around so fast it almost snapped my neck, I was not letting her change her mind..

 

We talked all the way to church, I told her how proud I was of her, that yes we all make mistakes but we are not our mistakes, we learn from them, grow and change.

That I wished she could see what I saw when I looked at her, a smart, beautiful, funny, sensitive, caring old soul. I wish she could see how she would one day change the world with her big heart.

 

When we got to church something happened, the Holy Spirit was all through the house of God, she started to cry, she felt it as well.

 

I held her and we cried together as I kept praying and thanking God for doing this. I know this is olny the first step but I know he is working on her and maybe just maybe she will want to come back…while he does things on the outside of church to her heart, to her self confidence, to let her know she is loved and she is somebody, not just the horrible things her father says about her. No, that she is the child of the most high God, made in his perfect image.

 

So today my friends, I am here to tell you the power of prayer works, you just have to believe, beyond a shadow of a doubt, let go, give it to God and just believe….

 

Be the change you want to see”
