12.11.20 – Daily Dose of Worship. A study on prayer. Part 26. Prayer changes things.

DEVOTION: “Since I have begun to pray, I find my extreme view of personality changing. My own self is becoming more important and this is exactly the opposite of self love. You don’t teach a seed how to die into treehood by throwing it into the fire; and it has to become a good seed before it’s worth burying.” (Pg36)

Prayer changes things. We know this.

The more we pray, the more we are able to focus on God and who He is in our lives. Prayer has a way of taking our sights off of ourselves and getting us to focus on others. On other things. On other situations. On other people.

Prayer has a way of pulling us away from our own desires and egos. It draws us closer to God, whose heart is for giving, for compassion, for mercy. The more we pray, the more we are filled with these traits because the Father puts these traits in us. Fills us with them. As our relationship with Him grows our desire to be a reflection of Him grows.

Pray today. Be changed today.

    Remember, EGO means “E”dging “G”od “O”ut. (Edging God Out)

    When how others are not doing so well. It reminds me of how grateful I am for every day. I bow my head in prayer for others. That they are blessed with peace, health, love and joy that our dear Lord gives us.
    Everything is possible with God.

    God is the only one that can turn
    A mess into miracles,
    Test into testimony,
    Trials into triumph,
    Victims into victory
    He is worthy to be PRAISED.

    Lord let me be a reflection more of you and less of what Iwant myself to be. You are in command and I will listen. Thank you for your loving kindness for what you see in me and the patience to guide me toward a better me. In your Holy name. Amen
    Let yourself become more filled by God and less by the worldly ideas.
