Often when we are grateful or helpless we turn to prayer. how have you experienced the power of prayer in your life. someone told me prayer has no power... some people prayer even to devil... some don't prayer at all... yet they are very powerful individuals contributing to better humanitarian life for all the great deal. i don't have any experience in my life for power of prayer... but i think with prayers hardwork and self confident are important in life.

..hi.. well, in my case, prayer has always been my partner ever since I was a child.. I grew up in a very poor and single parent family and life was so hard.. I can't even imagine how we ever survived with that kind of hardships.. our father taught us to pray because he said, it was the only means we have and so that's what we did.. and I have so many personal experiences of how powerful prayer is.. the times when I thought everything was over, its God who gives me the strentgh to move on.. well, of course prayer alone won't work.. what I mean is, I do my best and God takes care of the rest.. prayer should always be accompaned with actions.. sometimes we wonder why we see people who tend to pray always but have the same lifestyle while there are people who seem not to pray at all yet have abundant life.. because those who pray think that God will provide them their needs even without exerting much effort which is wrong.. it won't be God who will work for them.. its still them who will work and God will just be giving them the guidance, the strength, and the wisdom to do their work succeffully..

yes prayer is the most powerful things that can move mountains. ive been into so many difficulty in my life before and i was able to face them all without destroying much of myself and was able to face it with full confidence coz i know god is with me all the time. i know problem is never ending while im still breathing. what matter is we know how to face and accept it with the help of god.

Yes countless of times. Prayers has helped us (i'm a single mom to 3 kids)survive all the trials we have to face while my kids are growing up. Prayers gave us strength, calmness and inspiration on how to handle situations and in many cases resulted to unexpected circumstances and people whose hearts the Lord has touched to guide us and help us through hard times.
