Good Quote 10-11-17

“The old saying, “Prayer changes things,” is only half-true. What it also changes is our attitudes as we relinquish our worries and anxieties to the Lord.  Often, then, when we leave the results to Him, He intervenes and does what we could not do.  Also, prayer changes our perception of what is possible and recruits us to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

And it’s during the step of praise in our prayers that we experience relinquishment.  You cannot really praise the Lord of all and keep control of all at the same time.  With praise in times of difficulty, dark moods are lifted; our troubled spirits are transformed; and our unwilling hearts are made receptive.  Plus I find that bright times of success and smooth sailing are elevated with praise into joy.  But whatever the circumstances of life, praise brings us to the heart of God.”
