Daily Prayers Diminish Our Cares

imageSOME of us may have lost hope because we have not seen the light in the solution of our problems. But I can say with all humility that God has been kind to me because He has granted my prayers many times. I strongly believe in prayers. I believe that no matter what crisis we are confronted with, if we have that faith no matter how small it might be, even if it is as small as a mustard seed God will give it to us. And, of course if what we ask for is good for us. What matters most is that we should never waver in our prayers and have the patient to wait in God’s own time. If our wish or prayers will not be granted for sure God has His own reason. As one writer puts it: “If one door is closed another door will be open.”

If our wish or prayers will not be granted for sure God has His own reason. As one writer puts it: “If one door is closed another door will be open.” 
There is a story in the book, “God's Little Devotional Book For Women,” wherein a nurse once taught a child to pray on his fingers. This was her method: “Your thumb is the digit nearest to your heart, so pray first for those who are closest to you. Your own needs, of course, should be included, as well as those of your beloved family and friends. The second finger is the one used for pointing. Pray for those who point you toward truth, whether at church or school. Pray for your teachers, mentors, pastors, and those who inspire your faith. The third finger is the tallest. Let it stand for the leaders in every sphere of life. Pray for those in authority- both within the body of Christ and those who hold office in various areas of government. The fourth finger is the weakest, as every pianist knows. Let it stand for those who are in trouble and pain-the sick, injured, abused, wounded, or hurt. The little finger is the smallest. Let it stand for those who often go unnoticed, including those who suffer abuse and deprivation.”
This may be a simple and wonderful way to pray, especially if we teach our kids in this manner. For we can imbibed in their hearts and minds that we don’t only pray for ourselves but also other people. Most of all, let us bear in mind that God’s answers are wiser than ours. And His answers are: “Yes, no, wait; and if.”
