After all these years, I still don't quiet fully understand prayer. It's something of a mystery. However, one thing I do know: When you're in desperate need, prayer springs naturally from our lips and from the deepest level of our hearts.
When we find ourselves frightened, pushed beyond our limits, pulled out of our comfort zones, when our well-being is threatened, we reflexively and involuntarily resort to prayer. "Help Lord!" is our natural response.
