Why Should I Pray?

We pray because God hears and desires that we pray. He doesn’t only choose to listen but also answers our prayers. When we start prayer we are opening ourselves up to God, inviting him into our hearts and lives. This is the same with anyone you are praying for so please give your friend the same love!

When we pray, we are entrusting our hard time, difficulties and concerns to God’s care, asking him to take charge of the situation. We’re giving our issues and worries over to God so he can work through them with all of his might. This is crucial because Jesus said that if we ask, it would be given to us.

So today pray, it doesn’t matter if you’re praying for a friend or a family member release them to God and let them experience better health

The need for healing is evident in every human experience. Physical, emotional, and me-healing all play a role in our lives. What is healing? Healing is the restoration of health or wholeness. It can refer to any process that helps people regain their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Types of healing include physical (e.g., surgery), emotional (e.g., therapy), and me-healing (e.g., meditation). Each has its own benefits and drawbacks. Physical healing may be more visible but can also be costly and time-consuming. Emotional healing can help people cope with difficult emotions but may require support from others. Me-healing refers to techniques that help us explore and address our innermost thoughts and feelings without involving other people or outside forces.
