Everything. Every single thing we do should begin with prayer.
Now, before you think I'm nuts, I am not talking about asking God to help you pick out a pair of socks. For crying out loud! He gave us a brain to decide for ourselves....
What I am talking about is giving our day to Him before it begins... Deciding at the onset of the day that we will use every opportunity to glorify Him and praise in in everything.
"Always be joyful.
Never stop praying.
Whatever happens, give thanks, because it is God's will in Christ Jesus that you do this." (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 GWT)
The "whatever happens" is where we all get hung up.
This time in 2008 we found it hard to give thanks in "all things"....but we pressed in, and pressed on, and did it regardless.
What happened when we gave thanks? When we praised? Our minds left our problems and focused in on God the Father. OUR FATHER. Who is Soveriegn above all--and HIS decisions can be trusted.
