  1. Thanks, Heather; I can so relate to what Jaime is saying! Prayer is a struggle for us ‘doers’, but God has been teaching me over and over again of the power of prayer. I’m a slow learner, but He is a patient and faithful God.

  2. I think we can all relate to this! –> “I am praying for more faith… that God would help me see that there are things going on even when I’m not seeing results to those prayers.” I ask that for myself as well. Just because I can’t see it, doesn’t mean that God isn’t already answering it. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I think we can change things without prayer, however prayer is definitely the BEST way to change things. And probably the easiest. I also think when we change things without prayer, we don’t always get the results we hope for. I know there are several areas in my life right now that I know how to change without prayer, but because of prayer I know God doesn’t want me to take those actions, He wants me to trust His timing and wait for Him. It’s not always easy, but that’s why we have to trust in Him.

  3. Writing my prayers down is helpful for me. It keeps my mind on the task and I can look back over them later! Otherwise, I am inconsistent with my prayer time.

  4. This post totally related to the other one I just read. So helpful. I loved the verse you shared too from Ephesians. God’s Word is very convicting.

  5. Loved this podcast! We have to pray more as a body. We seem to use it as a last resort instead of using it to prepare our hearts for what is coming.

  6. Thank you Heather & jamie! this post has encouraged me. Sometimes you feel alone with you’re prayer struggles, assuming everyone is praying perfectly & consistently all the time.

  7. I sometimes feel like I’m talking to the wall. When “God takes a long time answering” I wonder if constantly repeating myself is worth it. But I am learning that prayer changes me as much if not more than it changes my reality, and I need this attitude adjustment regularly.

  8. Thank you, Heather, for sitting down with Jaime. After reading this conversation, I subscribed to her podcast and can’t wait to journey with her and Alana. For all the Martha’s out there, I recommend checking out Susan Rakoczy’s “Great Mystics and Social Justice: Walking on the Two Feet of Love .” It completely changed my personal spiritual journey by demonstrating the necessity of prayer in doing the work of God.

  9. I’m a “doer,” too, so I often struggle because I feel like I need to do something practical…even though prayer is often more powerful than any practical thing we can do! Thanks for the reminder that our prayers change the fabric of reality.
