Our prayers are powerful! They are appeals to the very heart of God. Their effectiveness is not based upon our righteousness, but rather on our choice to believe that God is right when He says He will follow through for us in everything. We trust Him because He is fully capable and consistently faithful.
"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important." ~Steve Jobs
