Prayer has the Power to Bring Change

We’ve just celebrated the last week of the year, and each year we’re always hoping the coming year is better than the last, only to find out that the new year comes with its own challenges. It’s customary back home to ring in the new year in Church, in one of the ‘watch-night services,’ where we prayed for Good Health, Wealth, Prosperity,  and all those good stuff we want in our lives.  That’s just one tradition that has become a casualty of moving, to be honest, not sure I can still stay up that late anymore.  So many traditions have been lost over the years but I’ve learned to make new ones, and through ringing in the New Year with prayer and thanksgiving, I’ve learned that I can do this anytime, anywhere because prayer has the unwavering power to bring change. It may not always be the change we’re looking for but change will come!

noun[ U ]


the state of feeling healthy and happy

~Cambridge dictionary

When we think about well-being we like to think about the definition as reflected in the Cambridge Dictionary above. It may sound simple but it’s a struggle to maintain a healthy balance when life has other plans for you. It’s even more difficult to stay happy when there are so many bad reports. Mental Health on the whole is a struggle, it’s something I’ve struggled with for years but have always just gone through the motions of filling my days with anything that would keep my mind off of what was not going right in my life.

Greater Can Only be Achieved by Faith AND Works

I get so excited when I hear people saying their greater is coming. After all, I’m always telling everyone to find the positive. Yes, your greater is coming, but what are you doing to prepare for it? Are you putting in more time/hours? Are you getting professional help? Are you studying? Are you praying? Are you making room? Are you saving? Are you making positive changes? Or are you just sitting back waiting for this greater? Greater can only be achieved by faith AND works.

The Uncomfortable Feeling of Growth

Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening. Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.

The Voice of God

I have faith that God will show you the answer. But you have to understand that sometimes it takes a while to be able to recognize what God wants you to do. That’s how it often is. God’s voice is usually nothing more than a whisper, and you have to listen very carefully to hear it. But other times, in those rarest of moments, the answer is obvious and rings as loud as a church bell.
