Gratitude Post # 6~ Power of Prayer

Leah from South Breeze Farm is the lovely host of this Giving Thanks Challenge. If you would like to join us just click on her blog. You can read the other participants there.

My thoughts turn today to prayer and just how powerful prayer can be. I don't know how many of you have ever been on the receiving end of prayer, but I have. I can not aptly express how I felt, I don't know if I can even find the words. I can usually feel when I am being prayed for. It is unexplainable, but I feel the prayers lifting me up. I feel the support of those in prayer.

Immediately, I feel the presence of peace and love. Like a hug from your grandmother. It totally surrounds me and blesses me. It calms my soul and I know that I am being lifted up in prayer.

Today, I offer prayer to the soldiers and their families at Ft. Hood, Texas. Will you join me in lifting them up to our Heavenly Father. Heal their hearts and let them feel the overwhelming love of our nation as we mourn their losses.

Beautiful post on prayer. I couldn't live without prayer. It is healing and brings peace to the soul. You have a beautiful spirit and I can feel that you are close to your Heavenly Father.

It has been proven medically that those who have prayers said for them heal more quickly than those who do not and those people don't even have to know the prayers are even being said☺ What a blessing.

My thoughts and prayers are with all those involved in yet another seemly inexplicable tragedy.
