Prayer of the Day

I used to pray that God would feed the hungry,
or do this or that, but now I pray that God will guide me to do
whatever I'm supposed to do, what I can do.
I used to pray for answers, but now I'm praying for strength.
I used to believe that prayer changes things,
but now I know that prayer changes us--and we change things.
