The Power of Prayer


“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Phil 4: 6-7


The Lord; our God, tells us to bring all thoughts, requests and petitions to Him in prayer. I do believe in the power of prayer and that is my testimony!



As a little girl, when I said my prayers at night I would ask the Lord; “Why did you give me such talent in an area with no opportunities?”  You see, when I was a little girl, society made it perfectly clear that girls where not suppose to be athletic because girls were not allowed to play on any organized sport teams.  I had to watch from a distance as my brothers and neighborhood friends play Little League baseball even though I had the ability to compete with them. Literally, I prayed every day that I would get a chance to play.  As I look back on those days, I realize that I was on a team all along; God’s team!  He had a plan to answer my prayers all along and in bigger ways than I could possibly imagine! God hears our prayers! He is the POWER of our lives! Eternally!

“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work in us.”  Ephesians 3:20
