Good morning ___school name____.
Wherever you are at the building, please stand up for Jesus and join me in the sign of our faith. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
Does God REALLY Listen to our Prayers?
I often think, is God really protecting me? Does God really listen to my prayers? Does God actually feel my pain? Or does God look down on me for the bad choices I have made in my life?
When I pray, I let God know that I'm sorry for the times that I have hurt others. Maybe it was in the words I said, or the way I mistreated someone.
If someone were to ask me if I regretted some of the things I have done in my life, I would say "YES". I'm human and WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES! I can't think of one person who hasn't done something they weren't proud of or regret doing! Can you?
There is no way to change the bad decisions we make in life, BUT we can learn from our mistakes and make better choices in the future. By doing this, it makes us stronger and wiser.
So…, do I think God really listens to our prayers and shares our pain?
Yes….. ABSOLUTELY! Because no matter what kind of choices we make,
God is still with us to help us and to show us a better way. God won't MAKE us do the right thing. All God can do is show us the path to follow! It is OUR choice to actually follow that path or take another.
Let us pray,
Jesus, help us to make good decisions. Help us to forgive ourselves, and others when we make mistakes and to learn from our mistakes along the way. AMEN
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
