Growing up in the 90s

Longing and prayer

Have you ever longed for something? Most of us have. The poor person might long to be rich. The single person might long to be married. Longing seems to be a natural state of thought for a lot of folks. But is it natural to go through life continually yearning for things and feeling incomplete and unsatisfied? One might conclude that constant longing is inevitable because it seems we're always lacking something. Dissatisfaction is a way of life for people who look to matter for satisfaction.

There is, however, another way of looking at life, and that way brings freedom and satisfaction. It is based on Spirit, God, as the source of our life and of all that we need.

Prayer—isn't it always answered?
