Praying Helps!

Do you ever pray for something to happen and you put your trust in God and then throughout the next few days you see Him working? It sure is a neat feeling to see. I often smile at the way God works. Lately I have been praying for a roommate for when I transfer away to college this coming fall, and I was having trouble finding the right one. I prayed about it and I asked Him to bring me the right roommate, since I felt like I was getting nowhere the past few days. Well, today I got an email from a girl I had previously emailed and I felt like I really connected with her and everything she said seemed like we were alike.  Hopefully we will get along and God brought her along to be my roommate....but anyways.....

Our prayers do so much more than we can think. They allow things to happen that we thought were impossible. Some things are totally impossible to do, but with God ANYTHING is possible. So maybe it is time to make praying a bigger part of your life. Instead of just praying before meals or before you go to bed- pray to Him throughout the day to help you in work or school or just in the tiny things. You can see Him work with anything you pray about! : ) It sure does encourage me when I see God working through my prayers.

Sorry this post is kinda short, but it's getting late, so I will just share some quotes/Bible verses I found that relates to the post......

  3. I loved the quotes! Especially the first. You are so right about praying needing be more than just over meals and such. I'm trying to "really pray" more often. This was a really inspiring post and I hope the whole roommate thing works out! I will be praying for you! Sierra
