There Is Power In Prayer

Some days you just get battered. Dropped into a place where you don’t see a way out. And the next day just piles on. That’s just the way it goes. You feel like you have to get used to it because you can’t fight it, can’t overcome it.

But there’s power that we can use. We can grasp, if we seek it. Power in prayer. The power of prayer works. It lifts us up. It breaks us free.

Just the other day, I was feeling frustrated and just ready to drop. Instead of letting myself give in, I turned to prayer. I asked for help. And, after saying a decade of the rosary, I felt better. Uplifted. Like I had someone in my corner fighting for me.

It’s hard to fight alone. It’s hard to ask for help. But we all need it. We can’t do it alone. The world tells us that we have to stand alone. That if we need help, we’re failures. But God is waiting for us to ask. He wants to help (Zephaniah 3:17). The saints and angels stand ready to defend us, protect us, and walk with us.

We just need to step away from our pride, release our anger, and whatever other obstacles we’ve created and hold on to because we’ve grown attached to them, and let forgiveness, love, mercy, grace, and truth wash over us.

There is power in prayer. Ask and you will receive (Matthew 7:7-12).
