The power of prayer

Hello friends. Last Friday, when the whole of America was happy because it was finally the weekend, when they could be with their families and enjoy planning the upcoming holiday season, a tragedy struck. A young autistic boy decided to go on a killing spree. He shot 28 people, including his Mom that morning. They were all students or teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. The first question that came to my mind was "Why oh why little, innocent kids?" Is there really a God? I don't have the answers to these questions. I read that the Mom of the Gunman loved guns and often took her children to the shooting range to practice their marksmanship. Aah! that explains so much. Kids pick up from their parents. Sad. NRA got to do something about the Rifle laws pretty soon. Friends, lets take a deep breath and close our eyes and pray for these good souls. RIP my dear angels. We love you! Sorry this had to happen.

Sometimes you hear someone say, "We've done all we can. The only thing we can do now is pray."
I believe that the power of prayer is first felt inside of us.To me, the power of prayer depends on the sort of prayer that you are praying. Oftentimes people become disappointed and disillusioned when they pray to God to grant a specific outcome or desire and their "prayer" is not answered. Many people think a miracle has happened when just such a prayer results in God's bringing about the desired outcome. Its a sense of closure we get when every other trial fails. Many people at once, not necessarily located in the same place, but focusing, and praying for peace, all at the same time has some kind of magical effect. Words won't placate the pain, but prayer will. Together a lot of great things have been achieved. It is at this time we all have to value life. Thanks everybody for being a part of my journey by reading my posts. I love you all. I leave you with this Song of the day:
