The power of prayer

 When times are rough (just as it is now ) PRAYER is like my fortress, it's like a room where I can go to and there I find peace and quiet.

Talking to God (sometimes I know I just blabber)  but that doesn't matter,as long as I tell HIM everything, every single thing that worries me is the only way I can rest  knowing that HE is in control.

But there are times though that I don't even have a word in my prayer, I sit (or stand) still and cry. Especially when I am overwhelmed by a lot of burdens.

I thank the Lord that I can always go to Him in prayer and there I find comfort and assurance that somehow, somewhere everything will be alright.


"Psalm 107:28-30 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven"
Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

James 5:14-16 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another,that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
