Prayer isn’t intended to protect us from bad things

Dog at sea wall
Pretty sure that’s a Dog’s prayer position.


What we pray for and what we get are usually pretty close.

When we only pray after something bad has happened we generally get the equivalent to what we get in the aftermath of a hurricane or flood if we didn’t heed the warnings and prepare in advance.

Pray isn’t intended to protect us from bad things.

Prayer is intended to assist us in coping with the inevitable.

Get it?


It is in our response that we thrive or survive.

Think about it.
