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?

Immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” Then he climbed into the boat with them, and the wind died down. They were completely amazed. – Mark 6:50-51
Do I even recognize You when You enter my boat to calm the storms and save my soul? Have I ever looked past You as I watch for a Savior who seems bigger, stronger, and more able to pull me from the clutches of the waves? I know I have because my self-doubt can make my faith weak. Yet You are faithful each time, and my worries fade. I do take courage in You. I will not look beyond Your shoulders to the night sky in search of more. I will trust You. You are the One who returns to the boat of my life and tells me not to be afraid.
