With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father. . . . Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. - James 3:9-10 (NIV)

"Often we pray expecting God to take away our problems. Prayer usually doesn't change our circumstances, but it can change our reaction to them. If we can relinquish control and give everything to God, we may find greater clarity. Whatever we are going through, God is with us. And God is bigger than any problem we might face."
