The White Dove Showed Me the Way

I believe in the power of prayer also.When I tell this story not to many people believe me.I had given birth to my fourth child a just six months of pregnancy. he was in the hospital and only a pound and the same length as a pencil.William which is what i named him became known as god's will because he was given to me temporally to shine god's love on this planet threw William's smile.well back to my story it was July 2 2004 my birth day and I had to come home with out my child. I have been blessed With three other children and we were all cleaning up the house after spending every waking moment at the hospital.we were all tired and grumbling about why this had to happen to us.when I wailed out loud to god and yelled why  how can I handle this. I have never seen a white dove before. my neighbors never had any as a pet. This white dove came a sat next to me like it was along lost friend. I did not have food and my dog was out Side IN the yard with me .This dove was not afraid of me or my big mouth or my children stayed along side of me until my whole family saw it. them when we were all still it goood and flew away. they say he sends his love on the wings of a snow white dove I know he does

A white dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit which we know is God!<br />

Now, If we only do it!<br />
<br />
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.<br />
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.<br />
for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.<br />
A Preacher of God once said; <br />
Lot's of prayer is lot's of power.<br />
Little prayer is little power.<br />
and no prayer is no power at all.<br />
it is written:<br />
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."<br />
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." <br />
"we have not because we ask not."<br />
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."<br />
"In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. The peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus."<br />
"Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."<br />
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."<br />
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."<br />
"For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. "Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight."<br />
"And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him." <br />
"But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord."<br />
" But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."<br />
"And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it."<br />
" And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full." <br />
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

Another example of how prayer is as much listening as it is talking. Good for you for taking note, and listening.
