This blog post will be based on my testimony, but through this I'd like to share how powerful & important prayer is!
Honestly if you just dedicate some time to God & give your all to him (surrendering all your worries & fears) he will flip your situation around for the best. No joke ANYTHING is possible with prayer!
The reason I'm saying this? So for like 2-3 months I've been looking for a job/ placement/ internship (mainly wanted to do a placement year, then summer internship, which then resulted into just looking for a job for summer. So yeah 'hella' applications got sent out lol) and trust me when I say I was probably at one of the lowest points in my life. I faced stress, anger & cried so many tears all because I wasn't getting what I wanted. Through this, I would pray consistently, morning & night and even when I was about to send an application I'd pray. So I got like 3 interviews through this & nope nothing.
I'm here getting all depressed, so close to giving up but thank God for my darling mother who pushed me to carry on applying & have faith, she put it in prayer for me too (I'm sure you all know how powerful a mother's prayers are for her children) and I just did it, the usual applying and praying & I began to notice how much stronger my prayers were getting; I began to say "God let me receive favour in ALL areas of my life, from male & female, young & old, white, black etc... Bless me beyond my imagination, bless me beyond my expectation" & I will still thank him continuously for allowing me to see day after day, because to me the fact that I'm even alive is a blessing on its own.
Then the next day I got a call, quick phone interview & I got a job JUST LIKE THAT! This was a Thursday & I was told to start on Monday. Long story short I started this week & it's been GREAT, Everything going well & on Thursday 7 of us got called to the office to speak to the manager (part-timers btw) & they basically all got fired except ME! The manager liked me, thought I was good & wanted me to stay but change to full-time & ofc I accepted without a 2nd thought. That is what you call favour! Now I'm not saying I'm better than anyone, I'm just saying there is POWER in PRAYER!! Also, it all relates to Gods timing because when God has a plan for you, he sets the perfect time, place & everything. Nothing or nobody will be able to take that from you.
Hope this encourages someone to keep going, whatever it is you might want God to do in your life, stay strong, pray & have faith in God & you shall surely receive!
P.S. Some bible verses to help get where I'm coming from...
