A couple of thoughts struck me:
Follow promptings. I may be the needed hands someone prayed for... and I may be needing those "hands" soon. :)
Think positive thoughts. "rather than dwelling on the negative, if we take a step back and consider the blessings in our lives, including seemingly small, sometimes overlooked blessings, we can find greater happiness."
God DOES HEAR and ANSWER prayers.
God wants us to be truly happy.
