Pray “As If”

A woman closes her eyes in prayer

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.—Colossians 4:2 (NIV)

There's an old saying attributed to St. Ignatius, “Pray as if everything depends on God, work as if everything depends on you.” When you pray and work with all you’ve got, you really can’t lose. Even if you fall short of reaching your goal, you will be better for the experience.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, encourage me to keep working, keep trying, keep hoping, and keep praying.

Adapted from 60 Days of Prayer, a new publication from Guideposts
