Prayer

If you are too busy to pray then you are too busy. – W.E. Sangster

We want God to do something in our lives or situations; we need help beyond ourselves; and we ask Him to intervene in the lives of those we care about for things like salvation and healing. Yet, a true understanding of prayer goes beyond those reasons.
