Where do thots go?
By turning your thoughts into prayer‚ you turn them into creative power. By allowing them to sit idle, you turn them into an empty, hollow shell, with no purpose, no worth, no profit. If you turn your thoughts into prayers, they will accomplish that which is good. If you turn them toward vanity, they will come to no avail.
Thoughts turned into prayers will accomplish great feats, make the impossible possible, and change the course of history! On the other hand, thought power left running idle has little worth and will only float off to oblivion and fade away to rust and ruin. Thought power aimed in the wrong direction—that which runs wild on dangerous highways of negativity, doubt and besetting sin—will end in destruction.
Watch your thought power and take care, lest thoughts left unattended catch you unaware. For thoughts left idle can slip away into the gray mass of nowhere land, into the cracks and crevices of complacency, where they will rot and ruin and go to waste.
You ask how you can pray more‚ when you can pray more? Every time you think a thought, just turn it into a mighty prayer—all the time, anywhere, with anybody, even when you’re all alone. When you’re doing physical chores or routine duties, turn your thoughts into prayers throughout the day. Don’t let them pass you by, and you will accomplish so much more. Capture your thoughts‚ beam them up‚ right on target, and see miracles come to pass before your very eyes!
All day long, no matter what else you’re doing, you’re thinking thoughts, but it’s how you direct them and filter them that can make a difference. What you decide to do with those thoughts and where you direct them is what counts. I tell you this to make your job easier. For as you learn to direct your thoughts in prayer, filtering them through the sieve of God’s Word‚ balancing them and directing them to Him, sending them on to where they can genuinely accomplish something, you will be able to fulfill this mission of prayer.
There’s great power in a thought‚ and I give to you, My children who know Me, a great key—that of turning every thought into a prayer, that of bringing every thought into the captivity of My Spirit. In this lies power‚ and I give this power to you so that in these Last Days you can accomplish great feats by directing your thoughts in prayer.
