Keep Praying

A calm and peaceful woman on the beach
When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.—James 4:3 (NIV)
If you have been praying for something for a very long time, it may seem that God is not answering your prayer. Know that prayer is something much greater than the means to simply getting what you want. Prayer centers your life and your focus on God. Trust that He knows your destination in life and will make sure you will arrive there.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, if what I’m praying for is not to be, please help me to turn a corner so that I begin to find new purpose and new dreams.
