“When you pray you activate a switch, and God picks up on it!” It’s something I was thinking about today. Even when it feels like God doesn’t hear you or like your prayers are in vain—something is happening. You’ve opened the gateway. Now there are different forms of prayer. Whether you pray the Lord’s Prayer or utter, “Hey, God, can you help me today?” He heard you. Think of prayer as a channel to peace. Once you make a request, there is usually an unfolding of events. At first, you may hear from your intuition. At least, that’s how it happens for me. Often I feel like I have a direct connection with the Lord. Prayer doesn’t mean you will get your requests. But even when you don’t, keep the faith. God will compensate. For every prayer, there is an answer even when it appears there isn’t. You have to trust. Lately, I have dealt with an impossible situation. I did all I could to make it right. Finally, I just gave it to the Lord. I felt him telling me to let it go. Sound familiar? Well, anyway, I guess my point of this message is how we can better hear from God. Go into the silence, talk with him/pray, wait, listen, act. If you’re confused about what to do, remember every good and pure thought comes from above. Whatever is peaceful and right is God talking to you!💕💕💕
