Prayer is a powerful tool that works in many ways.
It brings peace in time of trouble.
It opens the door of communication with our Heavenly Father.
It brings clarity of thought.
It supports those who are going through difficult times.
It helps us focus our thoughts and see difficulties in a different light.
It makes us thankful when we remember all of the answered prayers we’ve already had.
It teaches us to think about others and their more than our own.
It increases our faith.
Prayer changes things… and most of all, it changes us.
