Prayer doesn't move God

Prayer doesn't move God to do our will ~ prayer moves us to accept God's will.

It is where faith  becomes more than mere belief, it becomes trust. Prayer done right, and by that I mean the Jesus way, is an act of surrender and submission. We surrender our problems along with our proposed solutions and submit ourselves to the One who works all things according to the counsel of His own will.

As I look at the picture above I see more than men praying. I see men surrendering and submitting to God. I know their backstories and I know the answers that have already come and the answers we are still waiting for.

And I know that faith was moved from belief to trust.
