Verse of the Day!

"Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."  Philippians 4:6

As you may be able to tell one of my favorite books in the Bible is Philippians.  I get so much encouragement from it.  To me this verse changed my prayer life when I dissected and defined it.  When we pray we must remember that while God wants us to pray for others needs as well as our own we must THANK Him for what He has already given to us.  Whenever I pray I try to follow this process so that I know I am being an effective prayer. 

P-Praise God for all the blessing He has already given to you
R-Repent for any sins that you have committed
A-Ask the Lord to answer your prayer requests(now you mention them)
Y-Yield your life and will to the Lord as well as the outcome of the prayer requests. 

I hope that this helps you in someway today.  May God bless you greatly!!

Till Next Time~
