Prayer works you know!

I have been challenged a lot recently about how much I pray, I feel I don't do it often enough and when I do its just random arrow prayers for instant help and mostly self centred.

My new years aims is to be more organised and as part of that I want to make more time for things that are important like prayer and bible reading, privately, as well as with Stu and the kids.

The thing I find remarkable is that prayer works! I mean it really does! In spite of how rubbish I am at it! God is amazingly faithful and merciful. I not saying I always get the answer I want, He gives what I need and keeps from me the things I don't.

I trust that God has the best plan for me as Jeremiah tells us "for I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future Jeremiah 29.11

I pray God will teach my soul to be still and listen to Him and His plans and that my stubborn heart would listen and mould into His. I pray this for my church, my family and friends that this year God will make us praying people who love Him more and trust Him wholeheartedly.
