●Prayer Changes Our Attitude

Psalms 51:10‭-‬11
Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

?Prayer demonstrates our willingness to be humbled daily and depend on God to meet our needs.
We admit our weakness and our neediness by turning to God in prayer.

Psalms 55:16‭-‬17
As for me, I will call upon God, And the Lord shall save me. Evening and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, And He shall hear my voice.

?Through prayer, we see the vastness of the world and how small our problems are in comparison.

Psalms 60:11‭-‬12
Give us help from trouble, For the help of man is useless. Through God we will do valiantly, For it is He who shall tread down our enemies.

?As we thank and praise God for his goodness, with gratitude in our hearts, our troubles start to seem trivial.

Psalms 61:8
So I will sing praise to Your name forever, That I may daily perform my vows.

?Trials that once seemed huge grow small in light of the difficulties other believers are facing. As we pray in faith, we find God changing our attitudes about ourselves, about our situation and about others.

Psalms 68:4‭-‬5
Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name Y ah , And rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation.
