In this message, we discover a prayer tool that changed my life and the lives of many I’ve shared it with. The tool is simply this, when you pray for others, find a way to place yourself in their shoes before you open your mouth.
Although most of us have them, we rarely realized that we’re facing a thirty-thousand-foot problem. And even if we knew we had one, even fewer know what opportunity rests just beyond the actions we take to overcome one.
In this final series of the Thirty-Thousand-Foot Prayer, we tell the story of an event that inspired this concept in the first place. When you pray for others have you ever considered putting yourself in the person’s shoes?
One might not understand that the goal of praying over ordinary things is so that you may gain extraordinary, uncommon results.
A thirty-thousand-foot prayer is much more valuable than getting your small (in comparison to what it produces) prayer answered. It’s the key to making you a leader, but helping you to identify and mold leaders around you.
Once you come to the realization that you are not like the rest, uncommon, then you have what it takes to move others beyond a normal existence.
This web-post will introduce you to what the thirty-thousand-foot prayer experience will make of you. In other words, what will you become after walking through your thirty-thousand-foot prayer?
I found a commonality or might I say an un-commonality in the greatest leaders I know and have studied. They were able to get around some elevated thinking and thus had elevated thinking. There is one sure way to do the same. I call it prayer.
There’s nothing more disappointing than when a person prays and the results are opposite to the request you offered. What does this mean?
There is one thing that happens in prayer for sure. There is an exchange of thinking that occurs producing a change in behavior.
