    I have a question. I grew up in Christian

    church all my life. As a teenager I stopped going. I'm now 25 and I have a child. I've been in a rough path for the past few months & I've recently turned to God. Something told me to go to church today & I did. While I was there, I don't know what happened but something in me...

    I continue to pray for him everyday.

    Prayers to give him the strength physically, mentally and emotionally that he needs. Prayers to beat this awful disease cancer. Prayers because no matter how much I want to take this horrid disease away, I can't. I can only pray that God does.

    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...

    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...

    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.
