Silent prayer and the courage to take a stand

Silent prayer can bring confidence and courage to anyone who wants to walk in the footsteps of Christ Jesus and heal as he taught his followers to do. Jesus often retreated to a quiet, solitary place to commune with his Father, God, in prayer. His devout prayers solidified his trust in God and gave him the spiritual strength and courage to face down opposing, even adversarial, thoughts and to heal the sick and sinning.

Silent prayer is one way to learn more about God and ourselves. An honest, heart-to-heart, listening conversation with God can lead us to claim what is good and true and enable us to weed out and destroy destructive thoughts. In silent prayer, when we open ourselves to God revealing His goodness and His power to purify our thoughts, we become mentally and spiritually strong.
