Prayer is very important when trying to achieve any goal. Yet some people pray, and then do nothing at all. Then they start to believe their prayer wasn’t answered because they don’t see any results. The key is being able to distinguish your blessings and how God is answering your prayers in order to help you achieve your goals.
If you ask the lord to help you lose weight, but you continue to eat unhealthy food and you don’t exercise, you can’t expect results. You have to realize he is answering your prayers by making sure you are healthy, strong, and you have the money you need in order to purchase nutritional foods. So pray, believe, and then take action. Prayer without action is useless!
