God is a good listener.Whether you pray like a Nascar driver, or tend to be long-winded, God listens intently.
If you really believed that prayer changed things, really believed that beyond a shadow of a doubt, would that change the time you spent in prayer? Believe it.
Jesus said, "I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it." -John 14:13-14
Ask Him in faith today. Listen to Him today. Wait on Him today.
