    The Difference!

    I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day. I had so much to accomplish, I didnt have time to pray. Problems just tumbled about me, and heavier came each task. Why doesnt God help me? I wondered, He answered, "You didn't ask." I wanted to see joy and beauty, but...

    I believe in God and I pray.

    I talk to God like talking to a friend. There are different religions all over the world but what matters is our personal relationship with God. I kneel and pray and I feel the love of God. He blessed me with so much and I can't thank Him enough for His great providence and...

    Prayer Changes Things!!!

     God is ready to show Himself strong in your crisis now. He does not require you to come to Him with a long theological discourse, all that He wants is a pure heart that will trust  and believe His Word. Sometimes, a simple " Lord help me" may be all that is needed. It...

    I realize that worrying is not trusting in God.

    So when I start to worry I try to catch myself, because I long to be faithful to Him. Of course, it's hard to be "carefree", especially when life can be difficult at times! Just remember that when you trust in Him, He will see you through! Maybe not exactly when or how you'd...

    For me, it's impossible to not believe in God.

    I believe that things don't always work out the

    way we want them to. But with constant praying and faith,I truly believe that god will answer our prayers in someways. So During my darkest times or things don't work out for me,I always try to motivate myself that god always will have bigger plans for me :)

    God has blessed me so much in my life.

    I need to show my gratitude more!! Instead of worrying so much, I need to trust in Him. Instead of stressing over things I cannot change, I need to learn the lessons through my hardships! I pray that God helps me in these areas!

    I Believe That God Hears And Answers Our Prayers

    When I first converted to Christ I prayed.  I prayed because I was feeling trapped by a presence of evil and I wanted to be freed from it.  When I gave myself to Jesus as my personal Lord and Saviour He rescued me from this, but I had to endure a lot of suffering too.Because I...

    Prayers are part of the rituals

    for God's true servants. Standing, bowing, kneeling and prostrating 3 times a day for our Almighty Lord is a true privilege for He is the only One to be worshiped and referenced to. Glory be to God.
