USED thots into prayer

1 Thessalonians 5:17


“Turn every thought into a prayer. If you want to know how to pray more and how to get more things done, transform every thought into a prayer. Think of all the things you do throughout the day‚ all the things you think about, all the thoughts that run through your head! So many thoughts—sometimes running wild! Now ask yourself, where are your thoughts running?”

Are your thoughts lost in space, trapped in the gulf of nonsense? Or hot-wired to the switchboard of static and confusion?”

USED confusion without prayer

“Instead of just thinking about someone, why not pray for them right then and there in the moment you have the thought? When you think about your loved one at work and wonder how they’re doing, why not pray for them? When you’re thinking about your children, or concerned about their health, progress, scholastic progress or ongoing problems—instead of worrying‚ why not pray for them? When you wonder what’s for dinner, why not let that thought trigger a desire to pray for the cook‚ or for the shopper, and the list goes on and on. We have hundreds of thoughts a day that could very well be turned into prayer.”

“You should be vigilantly trying to capture your thoughts and make them work for you and others for good through prayer. All throughout the day as you are taking in the sights and sounds of all that goes on around you, in the midst of all this you can make choices as to how you want to direct and filter the thoughts that pop into your head.”


tap into heavens thought power

“Don’t think that to turn your thoughts into prayer is merely to keep them occupied, to fill up your time and corral your thoughts for lack of something better to do. For this fine art—practicing this Heavenly technique of turning every thought into prayer—is a great privilege, a great gift, a great power. the privilege to tap into Heavenly thought power! Use it, and it will serve you well. It will make your life easier and bring about miracles on your behalf.”


“Watch your thoughts. Consider all your thoughts. Size them up, take stock, analyze, weigh them up, and ask yourself, what are your thoughts accomplishing? Where are they going? Are they headed in the right direction or in the wrong direction? Or are they lost in space, trapped in the gulf of nonsense? Or hot-wired to the switchboard of static and confusion?”


Specific Prayers Are Like Smart Bombs

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal; you fight not physical enemies, but spiritual ones. It’s like the smart bombs that armies use, and how much more effective they are than the bombs they used in World War II or even just a few years ago‚ when they dropped them randomly from the sky. Yes, they did damage, but the smart bombs are specifically targeted to destroy a certain target, and so the damage inflicted is of greater importance and does more harm to the enemy because it hits the exact spot which it was aimed at. This is like your prayers. When you are specific and your prayer is targeted, it inflicts greater damage on the Enemy.”


“People equate action with doing something. But they must realize that praying is also action—the most efficient and powerful kind of action.” 

“If you want to do more in prayer, consider your thoughts. Thoughts are real things. They can bless or they can curse; they can help or they can hinder; they can provide comfort and peace, or they can emit emptiness; they can give protection and security, or they can lead the way to accident and misfortune—all according to how you turn them. Turn those thoughts into prayer.”
