I strongly believe in God and the power of prayer, because He always answers my prayers. My little sister was sick a few years ago. Something she ate made her have problems with her liver. She was weak, felt as though she had no energy, and the doctor told her he did not know if her liver would ever be normal again. I told her I would pray for her and for her to pray, too. She said she was. Gradually, over a period of a few weeks, her liver began to get better and better. She went to the doctor, and he said the tests showed her liver was back to normal. I prayed to God to give my sister back her spirit, strength, and beauty of her youth and for her liver to heal and for her to be back to her normal self. Thank God, He once again answered my prayers, and she is back to normal and so is her liver!
There have been many times in my life when I have had no one to turn to but God, and I have found He is the most important one to turn to. He is the only one you can truly depend on, but you must have faith! When I pray, I pray with faith that He will hear and answer my prayers, and I go about my daily routine as normal and expect Him to answer them because he always does, but you must ask. I've found myself in bad situations, and I have had to call upon God numerous times. He has never failed me, and He has always answered me. Once, my husband slung me from a boat when he took off, and I slid out of the boat and into the river in water way over my head. I had been riding in the back of the boat near the motor, and I was afraid of the motor hitting me. When I felt myself slipping from the boat, I put everything into the Lord's hands and began praying that the motor would not hit me, and I would not drown. As the water closed over my head, I felt at peace and knew I'd be rescued. I could feel God there with me. There have been many times and many situations in my life I know if not for prayers and God, I would not be here today, or be where I am today, literally, and in life. God has always seen me through. Put your faith and trust in God, and He will always be there for you!I've traveled a long way through life with Him.
I have a writing devotional in the book Words to Write By. The book is full of devotionals for writers, and I've found it very inspiring. It motivates me to continue my writing journey for the Lord.
