Power of prayer could be a life changer

Five Minute Life Changer

Need a Life Changer?

Do you ever feel stressed and over scheduled?  I certainly have in the past.  I felt like there just wasn’t enough time in the day to get everything done.  Sometimes it was hard to focus or concentrate with so many things that needed my attention… family, work, sick relatives, drama, deadlines, on and it on it went. Then, a few years ago, a spiritual leader ask if I would be willing to give 5 minutes of my day to change my life. YES was my answer.  But it would take me years to implement this life changer.  Why?  I just didn’t make the time.  I hope you will learn from my mistake and carve out 5 minutes right now. Go ahead and put it on your calendar if that’s what you need to do.  We all have busy lives, but I am willing to bet that if you open up your calendar right now you could find five minutes to spare.

Let’s Get Started

So now you have five minutes set aside, what in the world could you do in five minutes that would change your life?  Pray!  Is that a doubtful look I see on your face?  Maybe you don’t believe that prayer could be a life changer or maybe you don’t think five minutes is enough.  All I can say is that you already put it on your calendar, so why not try it everyday for a week and see what happens?

When I finally made the commitment, it was tough, not only for me but for my family.  My kids were used to barging in on me no matter what I was doing.  So for me, with a little bit or trial and error, I decided my prayer time would be in the morning before anyone woke up.  I would get a cup of coffee and sit quietly sipping it.  Once I had woken up a bit, I would start my ritual.  The hardest part for me in the beginning was to avoid running through my to-do list for the day – this is N-O-T the time for that.

Life Changing Results

What can you expect if you pray every day for five minutes?  For me, it truly was a life changer. It filled my day with a sense of peace.  Using those few minutes to reflect on what I was grateful for helped me to have perspective. Calling to mind people who were in need of extra care, comfort or healing took away some of the helplessness that I felt about their conditions. Speaking freely about my fears, burdens, blessings and desires allowed me to fully accept them and entrust them to a higher power.  Quiet simply, it strengthen and balanced me for the day.  It made everything easier and life more joyful.

What will it do for you?  There’s only one way to find out…
