The power of choosing to pray to the Lord changes things—in fact, it changes us. We know from our own experience that praying for others and for ourselves makes a major difference in life. I can say for myself that when I have asked you or others in my life to pray for me, or to pray for someone in my family, deep down it lifts my soul. It’s because I know and can somehow feel that my deepest needs and concerns are being held in God’s own God’s hands and I trust that Divine Love and Wisdom itself is addressing the issues, and doing so for the greatest good possible.

Sometimes, prayer seems simple and straightforward, while at other times it’s quite baffling and complex, and sometimes it may seem like nonsense or irrelevant. If we are in a dark place inside and we do not acknowledge our dark frame of mind nor sense of feeling lost, then things may unfold in ways very different from what we expect.
