The Lord reminds us today about the importance , the value of prayer and the right attitude we should have in praying.
I am reminded of the saying. An apple a day will keep the doctor away and I believe its true also when we say a prayer each day will keep the adversary, the bad things in life away.
We all have varied experiences in praying.
For some prayers are immediately answered. Like in a case of a lady who was cured of her cancer right away.
For others, it takes a long time. It took my sister many years praying to have a child and she was already 42 when they had their first baby.
Still for others seemingly their prayers are never answered. And they get discourage and they stop praying.
Story: of praying and seemingly unanswered prayers.
Never get discourage in praying.
God knows what is best for us and He will decide what to give. It is not for us to demand.
He will surely bless us with the best and never give us something that could harm or destroy us.
Pray without weary and pray unceasingly and believe miracles can still happen. amen
This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.
"Leaps of Faith"
"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
