Powerful Prayer

“You can do more than pray after you have prayed; but you can never do more than pray until you have prayed.”  
A.J. Gordon
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”
James 5:16
Father,I’m afraid I’ve done it again. I have tried to do things on my own, I have tried to handle my problems by myself. Help me to remember that You always have my best interest in mind and that You are always ready to hear my prayers. Lord, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately. I feel stressed and unsure of which steps to take next. But today I am going to take my eyes off the problems and put them on You. I am going to put all the stresses in Your hands and watch what You will do with them! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
