Prioritize prayer. It’s always important to give prayer a place of importance in our lives. One of the reasons I began daily “Attitude of Gratitude” posts on Facebook was due to the impact of a quote about considering what would happen if the only things remaining in our lives today were the things we thanked God for yesterday.
Here are your March 10 inspirational thoughts…
“If you and I are going to succeed at being ourselves
and succeed in life, then we must know how to pray
and be willing to give prayer
a place of priority in our daily lives.
We have no right to expect what we have not prayed for.
How you ask is important.
The Bible says in James 5:16 that the
fervent, effectual prayer of a righteous man
makes tremendous power available.
What kind of person?
A righteous person!
Not one who feels guilty, condemned, no good,
and as if God is angry with him.
But it is not our own righteousness
that we wear into the prayer closet;
it is the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
Pray: Lord, I thank You that because of the cross
I can come into Your presence and pray.
I come confidently knowing that
I have the righteousness of Jesus. Amen.”
–Joyce Meyer in “The Confident Woman Devotional”
I truly believe in the power of prayer. So many things in my life are direct results of prayer. Most recently, like right now, I am enjoying a wonderful visit with my son and “daughter-in-love.” My son Andrew moved WAY out to New Mexico 7 years ago (from New Hampshire) and I haven’t seen him since then. While he was there, he met Alisia, who became his wife; I had never met her.
This week, they made the cross-country trek from New Mexico to New England to visit family and friends in New Hampshire and us in Maine. SO thankful and happy for this visit!
