Once we have given our anxieties to God, prayer yields its purpose. When we pray, it sets our minds on Christ, who He is and what He has done and what He can do. Prayer turns a weighted heart into one filled with thanksgiving.
With a thankful heart, admiration towards the power of prayer grows. Power is found through the thankful heart that believes in God’s ability to hear and answer the individuals’s prayers (Luke 11:9). There is no burden, request, or heart-filled desire too big for God.
