Today, Sunday, 20 January 2013. Lakewood pastor Joel Osteen encouraged us to pray bald prayers. You have not because you asked not. James 4:2.

He gave examples how his mom Dodie Osteen prayed for her car that could not start at the airport. After Joel, Paul and a mechanic tried several times it could not start. Finally Dodie said her prayers and ignited her car and it started.

It reminded of my mother who used to pray for her children for big goals. I sometimes would laugh at what she prayed because I always thought they would be impossible to achieve. Realizing it now what we have gone through and achieved, we really need to pray bald prayers. God can do anything that we cannot do. Through God everything is possible. Amen.
