  • Power of prayer


    How is your prayer life? For the Christian, prayer is not only a communication with the Creator of the universe and beyond, it is a necessity for maintaining a relationship with Him. Often, I am asked to pray for various needs of others, whether it is a sickness, a tragedy, or even a healing. In a relationship with God through Christ, I gladly will honor the requests of those who require prayer.
