Prayer is one of the most powerful ways to find inner peace, yet sometimes we may forget to use that blessing to the fullest advantage. In this hectic, fast-paced world, we may find it difficult to pause and pray. Here are some times we can pray and experience the serenity of that wonderful gift from our Heavenly Father.
--in the shower
--while on hold for a phone call
--while cooking dinner
--while waiting for a business client
--while getting dressed in the morning
--while waiting in line at the supermarket
--when we see a stranger who is struggling
--while we're reading a blog
--when we are seeking to say just the right words while talking to a friend or family member
Jesus asked us to pray always. These are just a few ways we can.
There is power in individual prayer and in community prayer as well. If any of you dear readers would appreciate some extra prayers, please let me know. I promise you that I will, and I believe others who read this blog will pray for you as well.
This week, would you please pray for my sister-in-law, Dorothy Rich. Her dear husband, my brother George, passed away on Monday, and I know she would appreciate your prayers.
