God often goes to the gutter to find the recipient for His grace. He lifts him out, washes him and transforms him - making him into a child of God fit for His kingdom. That is God’s grace.— Chuck Smith

There are more battles won through prayer than by any other means.
Sometimes we make the mistake of thinking God uses only 'special' people the strong, the intelligent, the beautiful. We don't think He has a place for the rest of us. We are so wrong!

The most important thing a born again Christian can do is to pray.
If through faith you have placed your eternal destiny in the loving hands of Jesus Christ, you can be sure that God is at work, shaping the events and circumstances of your life into a beautiful mosaic that will reveal His Son to the men and women around you.

Where God guides, God provides.
Though prayer doesn't change God's mind or God's purposes, prayer does change something- It changes us.
I would rather have the wrong facts and a right attitude, than right facts and a wrong attitude.
Prayer is not an agency by which my will is to be accomplished upon the earth.

We should always be careful to give God praise and thanksgiving for the work that he does in our lives.

As you commit your life to follow the Lord, He begins to plant His desires in your heart, then guides you according to His plan
God will allow us to follow self-help, self-improvement programs until we have tried them all, until we finally come to the honest confession, ‘I can't do it. I can't be righteous in my own strength!’ It is then, when we admit our utter powerlessness, that we find hope. For it is then when the Lord intervenes to do a work that we could not do for ourselves.
Our heart is like a reservoir from which our lives flow.
God is more interested in what we are than in what we do.
