DEVOTION: “Words without thoughts never to heaven go,” says the King in Hamlet. Simply to say prayers is not to pray; otherwise a team of properly trained parrots would serve as well as men for our experiment. You cannot pray for the recovery of the sick unless the end you have in view is their recovery.” (pg 5)
So. This is a deep dive already. I wholehearted believe this. You cannot see the outcome if you can’t see the outcome. If you don’t believe in the outcome and if you don’t see the outcome actually happening.
Many people have told me in the past that the reason so many “life coaches” are successful is because they help people see beyond the next few minutes or the next few days.
We have to believe in what we are praying for. It’s not always going to turn out the way that we want it to but we at least have to believe in it. Believe that it will come to pass. Believe that our God hears and considers each and every request.
We spoke about our words on Tuesday night on our member only Worship Underground Bible Study. We spoke about how speaking words into existence change and alter the path of our lives. We can’t speak negativity and expect positivity. It just doesn’t work.
Same principal here. Believe in what you are praying for. Let the words come forth out of your mouth and give utterance to them verbally, out loud. Listen to and hear your words pray. It makes a difference.
PRAYER: Today, pray out loud. Let your voice reverberate through the room. Let your voice move the air around you as you speak your requests, concerns, joys to God.
