WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT, almost everything in life fits into one of two lists: prayer requests or answers to prayer. In the most simplified sense, other than confessing sin and adoring God for who He is, there are one of two things for us to do: Pray or praise.
Do we have a need, a problem, a heartache? Are we in pain or feeling sad? Unloved, disappointed, envious, frightened? Nervous, doubtful, angry, stressed, desperate, anxious, bitter, or weary? Then we must go to God in prayer.
On the other hand, are we joyful, thankful, or satisfied? Do we feel loved, secure, confident, or content? Are we peaceful, cheerful, relieved, hopeful, or excited? Is our cup running over? Then we can (and should) take it to the LORD in praise!
Over 1600 people have asked to receive our monthly prayer calendars. As we relate prayer requests and answers to prayer from our partner pregnancy care centers, we're growing in our own habit of communing with God and encouraging you to do the same… much as the Apostle Paul did:
You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many. —2 Corinthians 1:11
Amen! May it be so.
