One of my favorite quotes about praying is “Someone else is praying for the things you take for granted.”
Many times we are so content with how we are living in our lives, that we start to take life for granted. There are times for everything, and the time to be grateful, and cherish those who love us, and the situations in our lives that we know we are abundantly blessed should be on an everyday basis.
People only want to focus on the things that are going wrong in their lives, instead of focusing on the fact that they are really blessed, and that they can really achieve if they use what they have now.
What you take for granted, someone else is praying for. Happiness never comes to those who don’t appreciate what they already have. Don’t wait until what you HAVE becomes what you HAD. Here are 20 quotes about praying to take to heart.
