I read a blog article yesterday about prayer that was still on my mind this morning. Here's the part that I remembered most:
"Feelings precede out of faith, they don't produce it. Likewise in prayer; if we look to our feelings to tell us whether our prayers are heard/effective, etc. - we are looking to the storm and not the Savior." (click here for the entire blog article)
It's a good reminder to keep praying even if it seems pointless at times. We must remember that God does hear and answer prayer!
