Prayer should be as natural to us as breathing. Holding our thought close to God, listening quietly for His direction, feeling the grace and love of our divine Father—Mother—prayer lifts us above the mundane, above empty hopes, out of the purposeless days that would try to steal away the best of life.
There's tremendous joy in prayer, and that joy only grows when we pray for others as well as ourselves. I remember the first time I asked someone specifically to pray for me. I needed healing. This wonderful Christian woman's prayers were such a blessing to me. Today, many years later, I know the blessing that she, too, must have felt from being given the privilege of praying for another of God's Children.
