Your words touched my heart as they always do. I love your candid way of
expressing yourself, and the warmth with which you "invite the stranger in,"
which, in essence, is what we, your readers, are.
Thanks for your article...honest, candid, eloquent. I like how C.S. Lewis puts
it: "I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray
because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. It doesn't
change God, it changes me."
Thank you so much for your article. I can't imagine my life without prayer. I
would be lost! Isn't it wonderful that we have a wise and loving Heavenly Father
who is always and forever there for us? Thanks again for putting into words what
many of us can't do so articulately!
Even though it may seem all our prayers are not answered, I love to pray because
of the comforting feeling I get knowing Heavenly Father hears me way down here
in Trinidad and I can trust Him. He is my one true friend.
Beautiful. Your reply said it all. Thank you for sharing.
We pray, because God desires for us to pray. He desires to part of our life.
He promises to answer prayer. We are to 'pray without, seizing'. We are to
'ask, and it will be given' Luke 11:9. We are told to pray for others, and to
pray in unity.
Prayer is our hotline to our Father in Heaven. We communicate with our earthly
fathers about everything, so why not our Heavenly Father?
Great thought... just what I needed in a lonely hotel room in the middle of
China, looking for an answer....
