Prayer - "the key in the hand of faith to unlock Heaven's storehouse".
Prayer - "the opening of the heart to God as to a friend".

Prayer is the christian's line of communication with God and is a vital part of maintaining a relationship with Him. We often turn to prayer when we want or need something and whilst God always responds to us it is not always in the way we hope for! Frequently, prayer is most fulfilling when we are in search of God Himself, His friendship and His presence in our lives. To pray and be prayed for is one of the most rewarding experiences of the Christian life. We often don't see the results of our prayers immediately, or sometimes not until much later, but God's answers do not conform to the human timeframe. Knowing that someone is praying for you has been proven to have a beneficial effect on one's life and it is a sure sign that there are people in your life who care enough to talk to God about you and your concerns.

Because you prayed for me,
I found the strength I needed for my task -
The courage I lacked before, the faith to see
Beyond my narrow world; new joy for pain
I found, and zeal
To press on forward, strong of heart again -
Because you prayed.

Because you prayed today,
I found it was not hard to face the dawn,
Take up again the work I laid away
But yesterday, and shoulder it, and dare
To smile a bit
And find a blessing I'd not dreamed was there -
Because you prayed.

Because you prayed for me
Tonight, I seemed to reach and find your hand
Close by as I had known it would be,
And somehow toil and turmoil needs must cease;
It was as though
God to our hearts had softly whispered,
"Peace" -
Because you prayed.

Why not try it? It works!
