THE ENZYMATIC REACTIONS OF PRAYERS.
“Ask me, I have seen prayers worked, I know it does. But I also know that character helps a great deal ”
Those were the words I heard last week Friday and ever since I have been pondering over them. I have been doing a certain kind of analogy on them but there is actually no “thinking over” necessary here, they are just plain truth. Why do I say so?
It is not uncommon to see students who will always pray that they want good grades, they want to pass their exams, they want to get a scholarship and on and on but they don’t actually work for these things. Will things just happen ? No because prayer is not a magic wand as used by Merlin in the land of magic and the time of myth neither is it a mere wishful act that conjure up realities. Prayer is better compared to as an enzyme. Really? Let check on a Chemistry class on “enzymes”.
What are enzymes ? Enzymes are organic chemical substances that speed up chemical reactions.
How does this relate with prayers for God’s sake ? Prayers are the enzymes while our works which include our characters are the chemical reactions. Enzymes don’t work on nothing, they can only work on a substrate. In the event that there is no substrate to work on, enzymes are a big waste. In the same way, if our works and our good characters were to be lacking, how do we expect prayers to work ? On empty vessels ? On thin air ? Certainly not. So before you pray next time for blessings, ask yourself, am I giving God something to bless ?
Your works are the sum total of what you do as a person, your attitudes, your values, moral codes, characters e.t.c. Work on them ! Sharpen your skills ! And Pray to God and see if he will not answer.
To your Success……
