“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28, The Message
There is not enough room on my website to share with you how prayer has changed my life, but I would like to share a few examples of how prayer has impacted me personally.
During my teenage years I was lost in depression and low self-esteem, but several of my family members prayed for me. I gave my life to Jesus just a few years later and my life turned around 360 degrees! Do not give up on your lost family members and friends – Prayer changes things. During my senior year of college I was diagnosed with liver failure and my doctors were concerned about keeping me alive. I was placed on Asbury College’s prayer list and I was miraculously healed. Stand fast in praying for those who are sick, Jesus still heals – Prayer changes things. I lost my voice the day of a speaking engagement and my friends covered me in prayer. When I went up to the platform my voice returned and I was able to tell of God’s goodness. My voice immediately left after I was done speaking. God cares about you and He loves to bless you – Prayer changes things.
If you are reading this right now, then rest assured that I am praying for you. I am agreeing with you for God to move in your circumstances. I don’t know how God does it, but He takes what the enemy meant to destroy us and He turns it around for our good!
We serve an amazing God who is always looking out for us. He is longing to move in your life today, the question is will you let Him? Will you believe that prayer changes things? I encourage you to pray (talk to God) and tell Him everything on your heart. Ask Jesus to carry your burdens and allow you to rest in His perfect peace. No matter what is going on around you, you can rest assured that prayer changes things!
“Lord, I am so thankful that prayer changes things because I could use some assistance in my circumstances today! I run to You today with every burden and care. I am so grateful that You hear my prayers and that prayer changes things! I will no longer worry or allow fear in my life, but instead I begin to thank you for making what the enemy meant to destroy me and declare that today You are turning it around for my good. Amen.”
