Thoughts on Paris and Prayer



Looking over my WordPress feed today is bittersweet because of all the talk of the tragedy in Paris.

People of Paris–many people are so sad about what you all are going through and are praying for you for comfort and hope.

My thoughts have turned to prayer because that’s what I first started doing when I heard the news yesterday.

Prayer works. Like a bridge from the spiritual world to this physical world, prayers create energy that passes between the realms. For example, over the last few weeks my fiancé and I have been praying for a friend to not lose her job in a merger. We prayed about this a few times a week; emotion wasn’t the driving force, we just knew God cared about our friend and this situation, and we could help it by praying. This Thursday our friend texted us that she still has her job! Seeing prayers answered still is a wondrous thing and brings a smile to my eyes.

Time and space do not limit God, and He hears everything we tell Him. His answers sometimes differ from what we expect, but sometimes the answers come quickly!
Prayer travels faster than the speed of light and can improve situations and help protect people. As situations of violence grow around the world, prayer should be our first response. God lets people choose their own way, but when we choose His way, we can help bring peace on earth.

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope
