AM/PM Challenge Post-Game Commentary

Last Thursday, my thirty day AM/PM
Prayer Challenge
ended.  After all
the thought and preparation that went into it, this challenge proved to be far
easier than I anticipated.  I’d like to
think it was my general awesomeness that enabled it to be a success but I’d be
wrong.  Granted, I did put some thought
into my personality and applied some organizational tricks I’ve learned like
color coding and hand-writing my prayer cards. 
But the reality is, “it is you, O Lord, who have accomplished all that I
have done.”

God was definitely with me on this challenge.  More accurately, He’s always with me, and my
prayer challenge helped me to be more aware of that.  Starting the day with prayer helped both
ground me in the present moment and focus me on my priorities for the day.  When I ended the day in prayer it helped me
to put aside the concerns of the day so that I could sleep knowing that I was
protected and taken care of.  Did God
change during the last 30 days because of my prayer?  No. 
But, I certainly did.  After all,
prayer doesn’t change God, it changes us.

Blessings,

Laura
