Prayer is a means to direct our minds to things we need to focus upon, on things we may need clarity in discerning, and as a starting point for taking action. Prayer without action is just words. Kind of like what the book of James talks about when it says, "faith without works is dead."
The 31 day Challenge this month leads us directly to Easter so this period is to be one that really challenges us in praying and taking action.
Each day after you pray whether it is in praise of God, asking for something, or praying for someone else try asking yourself: "what I will do today to help make that prayer a reality?" or "how can I be part of God's work in this situation?"
