If all your prayers were answered, would it change the world – or just yours?
So often, we focus our prayers only on our own needs. The next time you pray, try to identify specific people or circumstances (like those suffering from the hurricanes) that need God's help and attention. At the same time, ask God to use you as an instrument to bring those people the help, the relief, the means, the encouragement and the support that they need. Your prayers and actions will then change the world!
If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
