    Have Faith

     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.

    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.
