My best friend Jenny taught me about positive prayers a couple of weeks ago.
I don't know if there is such a thing as praying 'wrongly', but I may have been close to praying the wrong way until I learnt this the other week.
Before I would plead to God like this:
"Please please please please please please God will you make my winter be a better one. I know I ALWAYS get depressed even more every winter, and I don't want to end up in The Lakes again. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I BEG OF YOU HELP ME!".
Now, I know God hears every prayer, but I know a better way to pray now.
Now I say " Dear God, I want to thank you for making my last winter a blessing, I know that the winters with depression are gone, and this Christmas will be joyous for me and all my family and friends...".
And what a difference a positive prayer makes to my mood!!! I don't feel like I am burdening God, and I do feel, well, positive!!
I finally had time to share this bit of news with you, and I don't want you thinking you've been praying the wrong way, either! Just know that when you pray a positive prayer, God will actually lift your mood and you will feel feel the benefits!
Have a blessed day!
