#5 Prayer Alone Doesn't Cut It

Prayer should be coupled with actions which is something much different than expecting God to do for us what we are capable of doing on our own. Here's a relatable example: If you want to lose the gut, you may need to get off your butt, and change your eating habits.

Generally speaking, God expects us to do the possible-for-us-to-do parts, and do them without a miracle from heaven. One of the reasons for this is the Creator has designed us to labor. [2 Corinthians 8:11] Now finish the work, so that you may complete it just as eagerly as you began, according to your means. We cannot finish a work that we have not begun.
