You go to bed different… tossing and turning is the norm… you wake to a sunny day but clouds follow you wherever you go. You wonder if you are strong enough to climb out of the depression you are living in and your prayers to God seem empty because you are sooo very tired of telling him the same thing over and over again….. if we are really being real… there may even be moments after impact you forget how to pray… maybe you don’t even want to.

Prayer turns problems into promises and possibilities.
Whether we want to admit it or not, we are dependent on other pray-ers. In Matthew 9:38 Jesus said, “Pray ye, therefore, the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into His harvest.” Am I a laborer because someone, some time, some place, obeyed Jesus’ command and prayed that God would send forth a laborer to the field in which I’m working? This is a humbling thought, and removes all the ego and pride about my ministry, my calling. Because somebody prayed, did I CHANGE into God’s laborer?

It was a prayer that he had never said before, because it was a prayer without words or pleas.

For what is the amount of all his prayers, but an attempt to make the Almighty change his mind, and act otherwise than he does? It is as if he were to say – thou knowest not so well as I.
