I do believe that there is power in prayer. It shows our Lord that we trust Him, that we are obeying Him, and that we know we need Him. I pray, alot.
I found a note I wrote down on Dec 1, 2008. I overheard Emily's prayer. Like much other things in my life, I completely forgot about it until I found the note. It went like this:
"Dear God- thank you for this day, this great wonderful day. Thank you so much for such a nice day. It’s not often we get sausage for dinner, thank you. And not often we get carmel corn too, thank you for the carmel corn at the mall. Amen."
That pretty much sums it all up. It doesn't matter what you pray for, or how you pray it, it's just important that you pray. And who can honestly say they haven't prayed about carmel corn a time or two?????
