“And though thy knees were never bent,
To Heaven thy hourly prayers are sent,
And whether formed for good or ill,
Are registered and answered still.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our world is saturated with negatives…from the daily news to daily conversations. Yet it is a simple proven fact that our lives are a result of our thoughts. Whatever we think, we attract. Every single minute of every single day is a prayer and all of our prayers are answered. Everything brought to us in life is due to our thoughts. In his poem “Prayer,” Ralph Waldo Emerson states it beautifully. All of our thoughts are sent to God and He answers them. So if we are constantly thinking self defeating, negative thoughts…that’s what we shall receive.
Think about this. If we let God become the center of our lives and we let Him direct us, I believe the answers to our prayers will be more bountiful, more positive, and more fruitful. Perhaps it is as simple as changing our thoughts to change our lives.
