If you tell me your prayers, I can tell you your priorities. Anytime I start working with a new client, I like to ask them what they pray about. SUPER personal question I know, but it’s me! The more deep that we can go, the faster I can help you transform your life. This question is extremely important because I immediately know what’s important to them when they tell me what they pray for. You see, we pray about things that we value the most and we ask God support us in the areas that we believe will help us build extraordinary lives.
If you tell me your prayers I can tell you your worries, fears, and joys. If you tell me your prayers, I can also help you eliminate a majority of the stresses in your day. Most of things that we stress about are trivial and won’t matter in 5 days let alone 5 years. Prayer gives us that perspective of whether or not something truly matters. Think about that for a minute. We already know what we need. We already know what we are afraid of. We already know what brings us joy and happiness. If you truly trust and believe that God is always with you, then, you can stop worrying and start living your life full out. You can turn your fears over to him and become authentically you. You can BREATHE, you can LIVE, and you can LOVE with reckless abandon.
This week, think carefully about the things that you pray for. What actions are you doing during your day that align to your prayers? How are you helping others with the things that they are praying for? What are you willing to sacrifice or commit to so that your prayers can be answered?
Our prayers are brought to the center of our world when times are hard and I certainly think that a national pandemic can deem this time of your life as hard! So, what are you doing today that you will both pray about and act on? In other words, what are you acting on and praying about? If you do it right and these two things align, ANYTHING is possible. Use the special gift of today to create one daily action that aligns with something that you’ve been praying about to God…. then watch him go to work.
At the end of the day it all comes down to this: Prayers are answered because HE wants them to be. Prayers are NOT answered because HE wants them to be. Whether your prayers are answered or unanswered really doesn’t matter because the real miracle is in both….. it’s all in HIS plan.
