124 – Prayer is for you more than God

Prayer isn’t a magical fix to a situation but it is a great tool to help get us in the right headspace.

Have you ever prayed for God’s protection? Maybe you have asked for guidance or wisdom? Have you ever felt as if that prayer wasn’t answered?

Many of us have been taught that God “sometimes doesn’t answer our prayers because He has something better in mind”. Or “God knows what we need more than we do” so he blatantly ignores our requests. And while there very well may be some kind of truth to God knowing best and such, that just seems like a cute way to gloss over a glaring hole in our theology. 

This week, we had a super short but impactful conversation about what prayer is, God answering prayers, wisdom, guidance, and not dying from carbon monoxide. No, seriously.

This week we talked about:

  • If God answers prayers
  • Honoring the God Wisdom in us
  • Using prayer as a mental checkpoint of preparation
  • How positivity cultivates an atmosphere for things to go well/improve
