Does it seem like there is so much going on in the world and so little that you can do to help? Never think that way! Your prayers are powerful and they can work miracles.
Prayers are ways of offering support. Knowing that a lot of people, many of them being strangers, care about you and want what is best for you can lift you and help you get through even the worse of times.
Plus, prayers, bring people together working toward a common goal. In this world where so many are trying to pull us apart, the more that brings us together the better.
Also, in situations where rescuers are working non-stop to safe lives, your energy--sent in the form of a prayer--can give them that boost that they need to keep going. And sometimes, that extra effort is the difference between life and death.
Finally, the more of us that pray for a situation the more energy that is available to make amazing things happen. God and spirits work with energy. The more that is available the more that they can do.
So, pray and make the world a better place.
