of the joy and celebration from our friends, and strangers alike, and what
follows is a peaceful smile. The smile curls our lips, raise our
cheeks and excite our hearts. Likewise, when we hear of a tragedy sadness
or concern we meet it with a deep breath or sigh. Our countenance
changes, our heart drops and we feel uneasy or uncomfortable. We
are connected to life around us, both friends and strangers.

our prayers and
relationship with God, we are able
to call out to God and know He
is listening. But prayer is more than just your conversations
with God, it is a connective element within our faith. First, as we
pray, we share prayer with the many who have gone before us and those
who will come after us. When we share the Lord's Prayer, how many
more have prayed this prayer with tears of passion, of joy, of pain or
confusion. How many times have we too offered the prayer in the same
way? They are more than mere words recited, they are the blue prints
to being centered with God. Second, prayer is an act of submission,
giving our lives and our hearts to God. When we pray, we pray with the
faith that God is present and will continue to be there in our joys and our
concerns. If it is important, pray about it. You know what, your
whole life is important, so are people.
