Prayer Works When We Do



By Dawn Onley

Prayer has legs. And feet. And arms and hands, for that matter.

Prayer works.

When we pray, we are asking for God to move in our lives. We are probably asking him to fix something. Prayer relies on faith, but it should also motivate us to act.

I believe that God uses us when he answers our prayers. I’ve witnessed prayer working when I’ve worked – summoning strength that I didn’t know I had. Strength I could have only received by God, through prayer. I’ve experienced the pull of God’s answers after I’ve labored through the push of my questions. This push-pull is our two-way conversation with our higher power. We share, God listens, God does a work through us, with us.

We are always an important part of the prayer equation.

Pray as if you have everything to lose. Work as if you’ve already won.
