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.
