Prayer Journey

Last weekend I watched one of the most powerful movies I have ever seen, War Room. The storyline centered around the power of prayer. I have always prayed, but this movie really challenged me to the core. I desire to have a deeper walk with and Jesus and through daily prayer. I can achieve that. I am beginning a new book called "Prayer Works," written by the creators of the movie War Room. I am really excited to deepen my prayer life, and I encourage everyone to read this book and go see the movie if you have not already. 
In the first chapter of the book, it focuses on "What Is Prayer?" Most importantly Prayer is a relationship with God. We need to understand how Loving our God is and through His Love he will protect us and guide us.In the devotional it says how in life, we can have tough obstacles, but prayer can be a shield, tool, a spiritual weapon to connect us directly to the Creator. When you are struggling in life, go directly to God in prayer.

Peace Amidst Stress

Sorry, its been awhile since I have posted.  I am so excited to start back again with my blog. This year I started my Junior year of highschool and as everyone says, it is the hardest year of high school. At first I didn't know what to expect because I would be taking AP and college classes. Now we have been in school for about 4 weeks now and all this homework is piling up. Lately, I have felt so stressed with all this work ,but I know that God's peace can sustain me. God amazes me so much because during our struggles, his presence gives us peace. It says in the Bible we will face trials of many kinds ,but I pray during these struggles, you can sense God's presence in your life today.

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."

John 16:33 (ESV)
