2 posts in one day. I know, I need a life. But this one actually has some meaning. Actually, spiritual meaning. Yeah, so its important.
Yesterday in church, the message was:
"Prayer should never be your last resort, it should be your first response"
I like this and feel I have a lot to learn from it. I often use prayer as my "last resort" I'd be sitting at my desk, ready to take my MBA final and the prayers would start flowing. Or its two minutes before a presentation and I choose that moment to start asking for God's strength. What if instead of that, Id establish a relationship of prayer. Not just praying when I need something, but praying to be thankful, praying to show God the love, praying to help those around me. But instead, I do what most people do. I pray just when I need help. I dont want to be that person. I want to stop and pray throughout the day and not just always for me. I want to pray for others in a way that is heartfelt and selfless and let God answer those prayers in the way he sees fit.
