“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer (Romans 12:12).”
There are many ways to serve God and one of the most powerful ways is through prayer. In prayer there is the opportunity to praise God acknowledging Him for His power and His love. Prayer recognizes our dependence on the One who created all things and who promises to be with us no matter the circumstances. It (prayer) is a shield in the time of trouble, makes us aware of the snares that lurk around us, and strengthens us when faced with adversity. In good times and bad, in lack and in plenty, in good times and bad, in happy times and sad times, prayer matters!
“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.” – Max Lucado
