Prayer is so important in my life. The Lord is my best friend and I love to pray and chat to Him throughout the day. I know that He never leaves me, that He is listening and that He truly hears me! I have seen the Lord answer prayers of mine and of so many other people in amazing ways. It doesn’t always go the way that I necessarily think it should go, but His way is always far better and I know that I can trust that God sees the bigger picture and that He has a greater plan than I could ever possibly imagine. Spending time with the Lord in prayer grows my relationship with Him in a deeper way and when I get too busy and don’t talk to Him as much, I see the difference in my daily life. I too need to be reminded to Pray! Pray! Pray! Talk to God each day.
