    How do I find my way in a lost world.

    The answer is prayer. Prayer is the passionate pursuit of God. Prayer changes things. Prayer changes YOU. I believe prayer does the following things to you: It causes you to become broken, it causes you to desire to be forgiven, and it causes you to SURRENDER and CHANGE...

    I know this seems petty

    but I think its important. So if you believe in the power of prayer, please pray for me. I often feel really down on myself and slightly suicidal. I just want to be okay and I want what God wants for me. So please take a second and ask God that I be okay. God Bless ❤️

    A Prayer Upon Waking Dear God,

    so far today, I've done all right. I haven't gossiped, and I haven't lost my temper. I haven't been grumpy, nasty or selfish, and I'm really glad of that! But in a few minutes, God, I'm going to get out of bed, and from then on, I'm probably going to need a lot of help. Thank...

    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 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...

    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...
