Praying for Change

By Dr. Charles Stanley

Read | James 5:16

Hanging above the door in our house, my mother's favorite plaque constantly reminded us, "Prayer changes things." From an early age, I witnessed this powerful truth through her example. She'd tell me about some difficulties she was facing and then have me pray about them with her. And later, she'd always be sure to give God the glory when sharing the awesome news that He had answered those prayers.

Indeed, this is our confidence: Anything we pray for that aligns with the Father's plan will be granted. And the more time we spend with Him, the more we'll come to understand His will and how to pray for it.

Remember, prayer doesn't change God's mind, but it does transform the believer's heart. Some requests are granted immediately, simply because we asked with the realization that our Father loves to give us good gifts. Other requests may require time or certain divine preparations before they can be given. We, meanwhile, must simply be diligent to persevere in prayer.

Whatever the Lord's response or timing, we trust that He has only the very best in store for His children. That means we might not receive exactly what we're asking for, but something even better. Such is God's great pleasure, for He alone perfectly knows each heart's desire and wishes to fulfill it.

Our most powerful tool for shaping the world and lives around us is always available. Prayer lets us witness God's hand in any situation. And as we give attention, time, and perseverance to conversation with Him, we find no limit to what He can achieve in people's hearts and circumstances.

See Nella, you did it again. It never occurred to me to have my daughter pay with me about difficulties I face without her or even her own difficulties. I usually just pray for her. Even though this wasnt the gist of the devotion, this part opened my eyes. Thank you.

Great reminder. When we are not getting the prayer answered, we could ask in prayer for God to show us what is best for us; that way we won't be continually asking God for something that He has already said "no" but we didn't want to hear it.

Have faith and expect change to come

Day 197

Good Morning Brothers and Sisters,

I hope and pray that all is well with you and your family. Start your day with
God by having faith for the change that you need to happen in your life. Jesus
will be all the change that you need. He will supply all of your needs, He will
heal your body and bring peace and solace in your mind. Jesus the Christ will
cause you to live an abundant life in Him one you submit to His change of life
style. “Bring forth fruit that is consistent with repentance [let your lives
prove your change of heart];” (Matt 3:8 AMP) So be encouraged this morning and
expect to see the change happen in your life as you live to please Jesus Christ.

“For in the Gospel a righteousness which God ascribes is revealed, both
springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed through the way of faith
that arouses to more faith]. As it is written, The man who through faith is just
and upright shall live and shall live by faith. ” (Rom 1:17 AMP)

Challenge of the day: Have enough faith in God to witness a true change in you.
Your change will come when you decide and expect the change that is needed in
you.

To God be the glory for all things
Start Your Day With God
