The Power of Prayer

What prayers does God answer ? For what should we pray ?
In the Our Father, Jesus teaches us to pray every day.
Not for riches, nor for glory, nor for selfish gain.
But for God’s heavenly kingdom and to honor His name.

God says He will help us and give us the strength
To endure life’s hardships and to remain in the faith.
Yes, prayer is a privilege that we surely should cherish.
To stay close to Him who wants not that we perish.

    reminds me of a beautiful country song that said some of Gods greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

    Great topic with good rhyme and rhythm. God hears every prayer and answers everyone of our prayers. Some are instantly answered, some not so fast, some very slowly...Sometimes we would not want God to answer a prayer for we would want to take it back and God understands that.I don't guess that I received your sm for in is not in my mail box and I try to reply as soon as I possibly can. Thanks for the comments on my work. Sara
