Prayer opens our hearts to the power of God’s love. Prayer is how we become channels of God’s love for the world. Prayer is a gift from God - He wants to hear from us!
What if there are some things that God cannot or will not do until or unless we pray?

Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Could you men not keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter. “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” – Matthew 26:40-41
Will You catch me sleeping today instead of being alert? How many chances do I miss to do right, to do good, or to serve another? Please open my eyes to those I meet who need help that I can offer. Sharpen my mind so I can be discerning. When I am tired, it is easy for me to fall back into old, bad habits. Grant me the energy to be careful and wise. When the wisdom I need is beyond my capacity, give me Your wisdom to see the way through a situation.
