Prayer is the practice of the presence of God. It is the place where pride is abandoned, hope is lifted, and supplication is made. Prayer is the place of admitting your need, of adopting humility, and claiming dependence upon GOD. Prayer is the exercise of Faith and Hope. Prayer is the privilege of touching the Heart of  FATHER GOD.
Though sometimes, too often we ignore prayer and seek to accomplish in the strength of our own wills those things that we desire to have or to happen. For most of us are too often guilty of this, we need to bow our knees, confess our sins, receive GOD's forgiveness, and beg that the will of the LORD be done above our own. GOD is sovereign and loving and HE knows what is best for us and others, even if it doesn't always seem to make the most sense.
We so often come to the GOD with legitimate requests for healing, conversions, and needs and yet the answers we hope for often do not come. We then wonder and sometimes even doubt. Yet, we persevere and should continue to praise GOD. We pray because we should know this, That GOD hears us and because we desire to see results. We should pray for others, trusting in God. We should pray and when our prayers are answered or are not answered remember this: If we knew what the GOD knew, we wouldn't change a thing.
Prayer changes the one praying because in prayer, you are in the presence of GOD. There is nothing to hide when in quiet supplication for we are reaching into the deepest part of ourselves and admitting our needs and failures. In so doing, our hearts are quieted and pride is stripped and we will enjoy the presence of GOD. I am reminded of another benefit of prayer, "Peace".  For the Peace of GOD, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard our hearts and our minds and in HIS continued presence of peace will surely be our gain.
I send this to you and to all of you, for you are in my prayers.
With Love and all that heaven will allow from,
Sir Richard...
A knight in the service of the King of Kings!
