Making prayer part of your routine will ground you and recharge your battery. Try prayer first thing in the morning or before bed.

Talk to God on your way to work. Turn off the radio and spend some quiet time talking to God.

Making prayer a part of your routine and thanking God for all of your blessings, for answered prayers, healing, grace, or whatever has you feeling grateful is good for your spirit. 

Taking stock of all that’s good in your life is very powerful. It will help you live a happier life.

Watch for God to answer your prayers. It is then that you will realize the power of your prayers and the power of God.
