    Prayer Is the Food of the Soul

    On this unique site I have observed a deep spiritual feeling amongst most individuals. As we seek solace and comfort in prayer for ourselves and others.  We are quite a spiritual and altruistic bunch. We all realize and understand the power of prayer.

    Imagine if every thought you had was a prayer

    My husband is an incredibly hard working, dedicated employee.  He will work himself to death, for his employer. When he began his last job, it looked like a good one...but they kept cutting other jobs, and giving him more and more duties, leaving him with a 10 hour...

    Just to clarify, when I say prayer,

    I'm not referring to praying to "God." I don't believe in "God." Instead, I believe in my own Higher Beings. Why is it when someone prays, others assume it's "God" they're praying to? Anyways, I believe that prayers truly do make a difference in one's life. My version of praying...

     Prayers get me through everything.Every night, I pray and nightmares rarely surface.Also before every test, I pray and I manage to pass or do better than what I initially thought. Little blessings and miracles are happening each day.
