The cure for prayerlessness is prayer….PRAY.
Begin with praying that God will give you a hunger for prayer and believe GOD…your God, answers us when we pray to Him! As a matter of fact He has given us an incredible promise!
*NOTE: Please read this promise slowly and savor it, like a good dessert. Picture in your mind…Cheese Cake Factory…“Yeah, now you see it.”
”Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3
“God, You had me at “Great and Unsearchable Things!” I’ll take two of those! J SO, when we call, He answers! That’s the deal. He answers!
So may this week, and this day, be filled with answers. “Great and Unsearchable” answered prayer, simply because you and I called on Him with our President, our Pastors, our family, our choices and our friends in prayer.
He really loves you.
Below you will find some quotes from people who “called” and I’m sure they would all tell you story after story, more stories than you could fathom, on how Gloriously He answered.

“Real prayer comes not from gritting our teeth, but from falling in love.” ~Richard Foster
“Prayer is not a fruitless exercise that God asked us to perform to determine whether or not we’re faithful. Prayer is the vehicle that releases God to move in the earth!” ~Joseph Cameneti Sr.
“Prayer is simple, as simple as a child making known its wants to it parents.” ~Oswald Chambers
“God shapes the world by prayer. The prayers of God’s saints are the capital stock of heaven by which God carries on His great work upon earth.” ~E.M. Bounds
“To pray is to cast off your burdens, it is to tear away your rags, it is to shake off your diseases, it is to be filled with spiritual vigor, it is to reach the highest point of Christian health.” ~C.H. Spurgeon
“I can no longer condemn or hate a brother for whom I pray, no matter how much trouble he causes me. His face, that hitherto may have been strange and intolerable to me, is transformed into the countenance of a brother for whom Christ died, the face of a forgiven sinner.” ~Dietrich Bonhoeffer
