The Power of Prayer

It is amazing how life can really take over and sometimes you really lose yourself.

It is amazing how sometimes you take a look in the mirror and you wonder, "Who am I?"

It is amazing how the demands of life forces you to forget your own dreams and goals and put other things ahead.

I love my children but they do demand most of my time.

I love my husband but sometimes I find myself feeling very alone.

I love my job but sometimes I do wish I had a few days to myself.

I know many of you have felt the same way and struggle to keep your head afloat in the Sea of Demands. I sometimes find myself swallowing and sinking into this depression and feeling sorry for myself, but when this happens I turn to one thing prayer.

It is amazing how prayer can feed the soul and lift your spirit. Prayer can make things feel lighter and give you hope. Prayer was exactly what I needed to feel better about myself.

It was and is prayer that is getting me through tough times. They do not give you answers, but they give you the strength to hold on.

I believe in prayer... it is what saves me sometimes.
