I was recently at a meeting of Christians who were praying. On of the women there prayed this in her prayer:
"I pray that everything might turn out the way that God wants it to turn out."
I wondered why she said that and if she realized the implications of her prayer. Stop a minute and think about it. Ask yourself what that prayer might mean. Did she think that things wouldn't turn out like God wants unless she prayed that? Did she think that she was helping God by praying that type of prayer?
Now think about what the implecations are when one prays that type of prayer.
The words that are said prayers matter. Whatever you say in prayer repeatedly become imbedded in your consciousness.
