    Today I prayed the rosary

    and I'm going to pray it a second time later since I've been having issues with a friend. I prayed asking for forgiveness because I have decided to block a friend out of my life for good starting next week because she stresses me out to the point where I'm drained daily and it...

    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.

    For those that say it's not true: think of this!

    The NEWS/media said that it is proven by studies prayer helps. Now I do believe that one must be wanting to know God and living by his standards, but I believe that prayer is so important. Even if you don't believe that there is a God, try praying. Ask somebody out there to help...

    When you find yourself in the position to help

    someone, be happy and feel blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. Remember: Our purpose on earth is not to get lost in the dark but to be the light to others, so that they may find the way through us. -Alberto Casing

    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.

    They're Signs If I Believe They Are
