If you ask me how I how know this, I will refer you to what the Holy Scripture says. “If my people, which are called by name, shall humble themselves, and
turn (CHANGE BEGINS WITH ME) from their wicked ways, then I will heal their land”. This is enough to show us that even if we keep praying ignorantly that God should intervene into our situation, and we fail to turn away from our evil ways, there are high chances that our prayer may continually be to no avail, unless Mercy Speaks for us. #ChangeBeginsWithMe.
