    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...

    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...

    God answers prayers everyday.

    using God's name. Some say; God is his name. How can a title be God personal name? I do believe that God want us to know his name and use it regularly. http://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/wp20141201/gods-name/
