This morning as I read my Bible and prayed I was very distressed because I feel like my prayer life is not where it needs to be. A lot of the time I’m tired, or I can’t concentrate because I’m thinking of what I have to get done, or I just feel like my prayers are just words and I don’t really believe that God can answer them. But as I was flipping through my Bible it opened to Philippians 1:6.

 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

And all I could do was praise God.  He will strengthen my faith, He will grow my prayer life, He will complete what He has started. I’m not where I should be. But I am sooooo thankful I’m not where I used to be.
