    I would ask those of my friends

    that believe in the power of prayer to pray for a health concern that I have. A few months ago doctors discovered a lump on my lungs. They believe it is from an auto immune disease. I am seeing the specialist today to hear the final results. Please pray for me to trust God in...

    My Yahweh, I love Your Promises,

    Father, and rush to claim every one, like a child at an Easter egg hunt. Sometimes I get the cart before the horse and claim a promise before I do Your will, which may explain why I don't always see the promise fulfilled. But even when I do Your Will, it sometimes seems to take...

    Each day I keep asking God

    for wisdom. I keep asking Him to help me to walk in God's love, compassion, gentleness and kindness. I keep asking God to help me please and honor Him in everything I do in dealing w/my father-in-law, his gf, family and friends. Keep asking myself the question: What would...

    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...

    The last year or so. I've had thousands of

    prayers but that's regular. It's good talking to the heavens. Specifically I've been praying to find my twin flame, college, myself, my parents and also I wanted to hear Gods voice. Finally a couple months ago. God breathed his voice into me. I was pouring my coffee into my...

    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.

    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...

    I find it most saddening that

    so many people will convince themselves that things like vampires, Druids, and lucky socks exist. But those same people scoff when you mention God. I ask them why, and the surprisingly ironic response is always "he's just make believe" or "that's just a story forcefield to...
