The Priority of Prayer
What is the most important thing to do when your world starts going crazy?
There has been a great deal of push-back to the phrase "...thoughts and prayers..." and it may be well deserved if the overwhelming experience with this phrase has been that people say it, but don't do it.
So, for your part, don't just say it- actually do it.
When your world is going crazy, the most powerful thing you can do is to talk with God.
Praying is talking to God about what is going on in your life.
Praying is also taking time to listen for what God is saying to you.
Have a conversation with God in the same way you would have a conversation with a friend.
Make prayer a priority and see what happens in your life.
