"P" for Prayers and Problems
Prayer is the recognition that if God had not
engaged himself in our problems, we would
still be lost in the blackness. It is by His mercy
that we have been lifted up. Prayer is that whole
process that reminds us of who God is and who
I believe there's great power in prayer. I believe
God heals the wounded, and that he can raise
the dead. But I don't believe we tell God what
to do and when to do it.
God knows that we, with our limited vision,
don't even know that for which we should pray.
When we entrust our requests to him, we trust
him to honor our prayers with holy judgment.
