The Power of Prayer

"The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." James 5:16b

I'm thankful for the power of prayer that I witness in my life and those around me. I am especially thankful for friends that come alongside me to uplift, encourage and pray for me when I'm in the midst of difficult situations. It can be a real blessing to have someone that has walked the pathway ahead of you, reach back and encourage you to keep going. They know and understand the pain, frustration and sorrow you may be going through, and are able to tell you that things will get better.

There have been many times in my life when I have felt and witnessed this loving support and care. I pray that I am able to do that for others as well. Today I am thankful for friends and dear sisters in the Lord that love and support me.
