As people of faith, most of us would probably say we believe in the power of prayer. However, this can mean different things to different people. It can mean we believe that prayer can bring healing. It can mean we believe miracles are possible. It can mean that we believe the Spirit can connect us even when we are apart. It can mean we recognize that we need strength beyond ourselves. We need the strength that comes from God and the strength that comes from the wider community. It can mean that we want to let someone know that we are thinking about them—that we care about them—so we are going to pray for them. It can mean that we believe we need to listen to God because God can speak to us through the Spirit and bring us wisdom and guidance. It can mean that we believe that God wants to listen to us, to know our hearts and minds and that we trust in God’s grace.
