Purposeful Prayer

A NASA official involved in space exploration
was talking to a reporter about humans landing
on Mars. The reporter was concerned about how
they would be able to return to earth.

"That involves a highly complex plan," the space
official said. "It begins with the words, 'Our
Father who art in Heaven.'"

Jokes aside, the reality is that most people do
pray at some time or another. Even those who
rarely pray often do when they are in trouble.
How much better to daily commit and trust our
life to God and seek his guidance in all that we
do at all times—regardless of our circumstances.

Sometimes it's difficult to see how God is
directing us or making our path straight—
especially when we've been going through a
series of rough times. In time, however, if we
have daily trusted our life to God and look back,
we will see how God has led us all the way. It is
true, "In all things God works for the good of
those who love him" -Romans 8:28 (NIV). — even if
it is eventually!
