Something I wrote, very short, that will maybe help you see what prayer is.
Prayer is not the words formed on our lips--but the desire of our heart--rising on the Spirit's wings--reaching the heart of a God--whose love extends beyond the boundaries of our finite minds.
marc, in the midst of trouble, and it is part of our call, He will give strength in our weakness, even if at the moment it doesn't feel like it. The flesh will be in pain, but the outcome will be glorious. This is where perseverance comes in--sorrow may endure for a night--but sometimes the night is very long.Things happen that do not look like what we "think" is the mark of a Christian and God uses these things to undo our perceptions of all of it. Our walk is always a beginning. may God give you peace.
