The tale contained within these pages is a true story about my life and prayer. Prayer is so powerful, people don’t understand it. You have to know how to pray. Some people pray so fast that it is just words coming out of their mouth. I find that this is not the way to communicate with God. Pray from your heart and soul. Pray to God as if you were talking to your son or daughter, or someone you love. Talk from the heart when you want them to understand you love them. God is the same way. Be quiet and open up your heart when talking to the Lord. You will soon find out that your prayers are getting through. If I pray to Mary, I pray the same way, not just words coming out real fast. Even if I pray to a saint, I pray the same way, from my heart and soul.
I feel as though people only pray to God when they want something, like a bigger home or new car. They never thank God for what they have. I believe tragedy brings us closer to God. Most people feel that praying to God and asking for something will get them instant gratification.
