While expressions of encouragement are useful, there's a difference between thoughts and prayers. What are they?
The woman replied, "No, you won't! Americans are quick to promise others that they'll pray for them, but then they walk away and never follow through!"
The couple, stunned by the women's response, then asked, "How do you know?"
"Because I never see a change in my life or circumstances. There would be a significant difference if they actually prayed!"
The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. - James 5:16b
