The Power of Prayer
Scientifically, studies show that the power of prayer can heal a body. My personal opinion is your faith that the prayer will be answered is the reason you are healed. After reading another blogger's article, this blog was inspired along with certain events in my life recently. The mind is one of the most fascinating creations. We haven't even began to understand the depths of the power our minds yield. I do not buy into the "new age" thinking. I believe our creator made a marvelous creation, our minds. The power of positive thinking or negative thinking (stinkin thinkin, as I call it).
On our journey through life the people who surround you can either edify you or bring you down. These things effect how you think and feel. When you speak love and kindness and positive things to those around you it lifts them up and you as well. The peace you have in your life also effects your thinking. If you speak negativity to those around you, you feel negative and stressed. Stress we all know can effect you physically and emotionally, so why is it hard to believe it can effect you spiritually.
Life is full of joy and sorrow, that we are guaranteed. How you choose to deal with these two emotions is your choice. It is easy to rejoice when you are happy and there is joy in your life. Choosing to find the positive in bad situations is not so easy. Nothing in life happens by chance. Understanding in every bad situation, there is a positive purpose. You just have to look for it.
No one said life was easy, it's how you choose to walk it out that determines how bumpy the road.
Choosing the power of prayer can make a difference in these times of sorrow. It can lift a burden too heavy for you to carry alone. Releasing your burdens and looking for the positive results of prayer can make your walk easier and walk of those you pray for easier. Never underestimate the power of prayer.
