There is no time better spent than the time we spend on our knees. Years ago the Lord told me that we can have whatever we want in life directly proportionate to the time we spend in prayer. We can have the heartache and despair by not taking the time to pray or we can have the joy, and fulfillment we seek by getting on our faces before the throne. This came at a pivotal time in my life. I had no idea what we were about to face as a family. The next few years could have destroyed us just as many others face destruction, but because of constant and fervent prayer my family exists as the first miracle. I could have lost my entire family to suicide, but was spared because of prayer. There is no more powerful force than making a connection with our Heavenly Father. We have not because we do not take the time to ask, plain and simple. We cannot change situations beyond our control in everyday life. We can change everything through the Holy Spirit Who can be where we cannot. We cannot enter a person's dreams, but it is not beyond the scope of things with God. Nothing is Impossible to Him and nothing is impossible to the one who believes in Him. On our own and in our own strength we fail miserably, but He who is with us is far greater than all that we can see and hold. Never underestimate the power of prayer.
