But truly God has listened; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer.
Psalm 66:19

Your prayers, though feeble and imperfect, are a source of joy to My heart. This is because your prayers release the power I have bound in them--allowing prayer to become a vital part of My mercy supply. I could effect everything without prayer, but that would deprive My children of the dignity I have bestowed in this gift. Prayer is not a beggar asking bread from an unwilling God. Prayer is the exercise of Throne-rights by God’s children. Of course they are a source of joy to Me, because I rejoice when My children act like My children--and in the process become more completely what I have meant them to be. Pray seriously, My child--but pray joyfully.

from Echoes of Eternity: Listening to the Father (Volume II)

A Word from Carol:

"I often hear this question: Why a "faith-based" diet program? Or even, what does "faith" have to do with dieting?

My quest in the early days of this journey was to learn how to apply the faith I had in God -- the faith that believed he could move mountains and that he kept my life in balance -- and apply it to my daily struggles. Each of us struggles; my struggles were primarily with my weight, my self-image, and my self-worth. I wanted to take my spiritual beliefs and put them to work in my daily life.

I knew beyond any doubt that God cared about everything I was concerned about. The Bible says that he cares about sparrows, and even about the hair on your head! So why wouldn't God care about my struggles with eating? While asking that question, I looked up at a Sunday school bulletin board and a simple sign that read, "God Has the Answer." I knew then and there that I had to incorporate God fully and completely into the nitty-gritty details of my daily life.

Does God have answers? Yes, he does. He has answers for all of our needs. We just have to learn how to listen, and believe. That's your first challenge as you go forward with the 3D plan!"
