Why I Pray! Jesus is present in the Tabernacle. He promised to never leave us and his promise is true.

Hebrews 11:1: "Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen"

It is in faith that we live. We know not what each day will hold, but we think we do. Our knowledge is so limited, but we think it is not. If we have true faith as the writer of Hebrews writes, we are assured of things we hope for. We believe! But we are weak humans who fall quickly. God lives! He's the Creator of ALL things, not just some. He makes the sun rise as well as the moon. He made the mountains, rivers, the seas and all that is on and in them. Why would He not continue to create within you and me? Today is a new day. Prayer should strip us of self and our wants and needs and open us up to whatever the Creator wants from us - even the tough journey! We thank our God for the good things in life; why not thank him for that which is not good. For it is in suffering that we truly grow and are formed. God bless!!
