Not an easy thing to do when we live in a microwave society, yet it is very necessary if we are going to get anything done! Prayer forces us to be a thermostat, which is something that we don’t like to be. We don’t want to wait for an answer—we want what we want and we want it now.
The most important thing here is to do this FIRST and not after you make a mess of things. Think about how you fussed at your kids because they didn’t tell you that they needed help until after something was messed up or broken. Prayer works the exact same way!
There is insight gained from prayer that will keep a lot of stressful unnecessariness from happening!
