Marianne's quote is at the heart of our relationship with God. Most frequently when we pray, we ask for something.
We ask for an answer to our situation, be it a health issue, financial challenges, or to help ease our emotional pain.
The thing is, prayer has so much more potential than just what we ask for. Sometimes prayer is about what we can give or who we can become.
These quotes below aren't all just about praying for a miracle. They're also about the relationship between our prayers and the miracles we seek. Sometimes we are the miracle we're seeking, we just don't know it yet.
It would be a mistake to read these quotes and do nothing. Instead, try each one on for size. Challenge yourself to actually live each prayer.
Today, pick one prayer. Apply it to your life for just today. Pretend to live as though that quote were absolutely true.
Then tomorrow, pick another one. Apply it. Live it.
Take a mental note of how each prayer makes you feel. Look at your life and see if you notice any positive changes, perhaps even miracles.
Then after you've tried on each miracle quote, pick your favorites... and use them more often.
