    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...

    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.

    Prayer Answered With A Twist

    I pray often, not everyday; but several times a week. I don' t actually kneel and clasp my hands but it is more often that I will read something tragic and see something on the evening news and ask Jesus or God to help them. I have rarely asked God for personal help. I have...
