Pray for what you need not what you want


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times The hardest thing for some people to understand is that God is not a genie in a lamp who will grant you whatever you wish for. There is a wise old saying about being careful what you wish for because you might just get it. That's something we should remember because getting the thing we wish for with all our being may not make us happy if we get it and could even cause us no end of grief. God does not grant wishes because He is not about wish fulfillment for His children, but their salvation and because of that He answers prayers, especially if those prayers are offered the right way and for the right things. The right way of prayer begins with us admitting that we are nothing without God, especially when it comes to salvation, and asking Him for the blessings of forgiveness, help and guidance and the strength, courage, and understanding to serve Him to the very best of our ability. Those are the kinds of prayers God answers and those answers can change our lives and make us better people who love those around us as God loves us and them and enables us to grow closer to God, both now and in eternity.
