    The Only Real Magic There Is

    Sometimes we want to say so much. Let out our hopes, wishes, dreams. Just say what we feel but it seems as if noone wants to listen. Wrong! God does, and thats why we need to pray all the time. Because he hears our hearts and wants us to let him help us. So speak to him often...

    God does not reject the humble,

    never. It may have been the publican's prayer in humility acceptable in front of him, the publican may justify by his praying, it was a few words .... it was one sentence.

    I am a believer of God.

    He has answered my prayers and have delivered me from many grave situations. I've always been brought up in church and all my family really did was pray, have bible study and go to church. I talk to God when I'm driving, and I truly believe in the power of prayer.

    They're Signs If I Believe They Are

    Prayer means different things to different people. The basic principle I guess is universal; a person prays because they believe that someone will hear them, that is the goal, to be heard. But you don’t hear people talk much about what they expect to get out of that...

    It's so fascinating so many people say they

    believe in the power of prayer.. but do nothing to test out that power :D haha It's like wearing a colored wrist band for a cause. You do nothing else, but want the acknowledgement from other humans : that you are a good one.

    Why do we Pray? We pray

    because we Love. *If we don't love, we don't care. If we don't care, there is no need for a prayer.* We pray because we believe that our prayers would matter for the overall intention. When we pray for other people's intentions, we pray because we believe that our own little...
