When we prayerfully focus our hearts on God, He changes our hearts.
The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
– Psalm 145:18
Some times we pray to God to change something in our lives but become discouraged when we don’t see the results we were hoping for. The beauty of prayer, though, is that our prayers may be answered yet we hardly even realize it. As we pray to God to change the world around us, it has the miraculous effect of changing us! Prayer refocuses us on God and and helps us to remember what is truly important.
