Pray


Read this and think about it for awhile.

I have always relied very heavily on prayer. It has been a constant in my life since I was very young. It was how I survived.

But today after reading aprils post I really thought hard about how important prayer really is.

When we pray we don't only pray for ourselves but for others. We know that and have been taught it since sunbeams. But there are times when other people need our prayers more than we need them for ourselves.

I am guilty of being selfish in my praying.

I guess its a habit. Its hard sometimes to pray for others when we are hurting too. but just think, all those other people are in need of blessings too, sometimes even more.

I am not a great writer so I hope I at least got the message accross.

Pray for others even if you dont know who you are praying for. Even if it is for no one in particular.

Even if you are hurting, there is probably someone out there hurting just as much if not more.

Today I am going to make a point to be unselfish in my prayers from now on.

How bout you?

And thanks April for this post.
