CHANGING ONE WORD CAN MAKE A DRASTIC DIFFERENCE?

Twenty-five years ago I was a chronic alcoholic.  I drank when I was happy; I drank when I was sad.  I drank when it was sunny; I drank when it was raining. I drank when I got a job; I drank when I lost a job.  I drank before I went to bed; I drank when I got up in the morning.  I drank when things were going well; I drank when things were going wrong.  Basically, I drank

FAST FORWARD 25 YEARS = Well I no longer drink, so how did I manage to stay sober?  Changed one word.  I prayed when I was happy, I prayed when I was sad.  I prayed when it was sunny, I prayed when it was raining. I prayed when I got a job, I prayed when I lost a job.  I prayed before I went to bed, I prayed when I got up in the morning.  I prayed when things were going well, I prayed when things were going wrong.  Basically, I prayed.  Interesting isn’t it how changing one word, one behavior pattern can drastically change and alter your life.  I’m still amazed!  Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17

PRAYER 4 TODAY

Dear Lord, why do we pray?  We pray because You hear us.  We pray because You give us the answers to life.  We pray because it works.  Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  And if we know He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.  1 John 5:14-15

THOUGHT 4 TODAY

What’s more productive, getting on your knees to throw up, or getting on your knees to pray?
