PRAYERS CAN'T BE ANSWERED UNLESS THEY'RE PRAYED
Life without purpose is barren indeed.
There can’t be a harvest unless you plant the seed.
There can’t be attainment unless there’s a goal.
Ask Jesus to forgive you for your trespasses so He can cleanse your soul.
If we send no ships out, no ships will come in,
And unless there’s a contest nobody can win.
For games can’t be won unless played,
And prayers can’t be answered unless they’re prayed.
So whatever is wrong with your life today.
You will find a solution if you kneel down and pray.
Not just for pleasure, enjoyment, and health.
Not just for honor and prestige and wealth.
But pray for a purpose to make life worth living,
And pray for the joy of unselfish giving.
For prayer is your gladness and blessings from heaven is your reward.
When you make your life’s purpose the choice of the Lord.
So when someone ask you today, “How you doing?”
You should say, “ fine because I prayed.”
