Many of us forget to pray for success. We set our mind on a specific goal and then we go for it, without truly realizing what it takes to achieve that goal. When I decided I wanted to lose weight I knew I would need God’s help. So I read his word constantly and came to him with prayer. Not simply saying “God help me lose weight” but asking for everything I needed to achieve that goal.
I said a prayer for strength and courage, a prayer for health, endurance, persistence, an open mind, and guidance. I knew it would take all of these things and more in order to achieve my goals. So when I decided to pray for success, I knew I had to include those things. Prayer is something we must remember to do in order to achieve our goals. Yet prayer without action is useless, our next post will explain how prayer requires action.
