Thoughts And Prayers DO Work, If You Believe In Them

Trust God, and everything WILL fall into place in HIS timing.

Thoughts And Prayers DO Work, If You Believe In Them
Jennifer Hancock

Over the past year, America has seen a lot of tragedy.

Our country is in an extremely dark place, and a common phrase has come from this...

“We don’t want your thoughts and prayers.”

My soul crushes every time I see or hear that.

Let me tell you, through scriptures, why thoughts and prayers do work.

1 John 5:14: "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us."

God hears your prayers. Does it say He will give you exactly what you want?


But should you still trust him?


Galatians 3:9: "So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith"

If we have faith that God will deliver, the way should we get angry when he doesn’t deliver in the way we wanted him to?

Remember back to the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.

They were told that they were to be sent into the lion’s den for not serving the king and for worshiping God instead.

They said that their God would deliver them, BUT IF NOT, they were still going to serve him.

We need to have this same mindset. We still need to trust God, even when he isn’t giving us the things we want.

He has a plan for all of us, he has a reason. And if we don’t believe in our thoughts and prayers, then why should God believe in them?

Even at times when it can be disheartening and confusing, God still has a purpose for something happening. When we start to doubt God's power, that is when we begin to fall apart.

Why should we pray for these things to stop happening if we don’t actually trust in him? That is where the entire argument stands.

Trust God, and everything WILL fall into place in HIS timing.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
