    I think that the statement 'Prayer is not passive' is very true, we can see examples in the Bible of this: Jacob wrestling with the angel and the widow who pleaded her case with the judge. I find that crying out to God and pleading my case with Him is very 'bonding' – I feel that in the past, praying was rather 'difficult' and not very spontaneous on my part, now, it is becoming as natural as breathing. I am still struggling with listening, but I do feel that He is listening to me and that is a way of solving my pains.
    I don't really know if I am helping others, but I do let others know that I am praying and I ask them to pray for me – I know that a solution to my situation will help many to believe and give hope.
    Prayer is action where other forms of action are useless.

    Amen! All through the bible it is apparent that God expects us to do our part in things. You can pray for a job but if you don’t go out and fill applications you will never get one. Same thing applies with our everyday struggles as a LBS, What’s the issues broke down one by one? Pray for those and move forward in them also. For example; Loneliness, Pray for help with that and get up, out of the house and join a club/ group/ Church. Be open to God’s will in whatever it may be. Good stuff keep it coming!

    Because of this crisis I haver learned to actively pray and better yet I have learned to be still so I can here the answer. I have found prayer to be a very powerful tool in all aspects of my life. I also realized how much God actually carried me through a lot of this and know he actively walks alongside side me just in case I need a helping hand. I hold conversations most of the day with Him most of the time we are cracking jokes. It's a wonderful feeling to know that He is there when needed. I thank him on a daily basis and I seem to lead a much fuller life.
