Pray About Decisions

The intense prayer of the righteous is very powerful.    James 5:16

Rejoice always! Pray constantly. Give thanks in everything, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.   1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Have you fervently asked God for His guidance in every aspect of your life? If so, then you’re continually inviting your Creator to reveal Himself in a variety of ways. As a follower of Christ, you must do no less.
Jesus made it clear to His disciples: they should pray always. So should we. Genuine, heartfelt prayer produces powerful changes in us and in our world. When we lift our hearts to our Father in heaven, we open ourselves to a never-ending source of divine wisdom and infinite love.
Do you have questions about your future that you simply cannot answer? Ask for the guidance of your Heavenly Father. Do you sincerely seek to know God’s purpose for your life? Then ask Him for direction, and keep asking Him every day of your life. Whatever you may need, no matter how great or small, pray about it and never lose hope. God is not just near; He is here and He’s ready to talk with you. Now!


A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord determines his steps.   Proverbs 16:9

Sometimes, we must accept life on its terms, not our own. Life has a way of unfolding, not as we will, but as it will. Sometimes there is precious little we can do to change things.
When events transpire that are beyond our control, we have a choice: we can either learn the art of acceptance, or we can make ourselves miserable as we struggle to change the unchangeable.
We must entrust the things we can’t change to God. Once we have done so, we can prayerfully and faithfully tackle the important work that He has placed before us: doing something about the things we can change…and doing it sooner rather than later. 
Can you summon the courage and the wisdom to accept life on its own terms? If so, you’ll most certainly be rewarded for your good judgment.
