The Power of Prayer

Lately I feel like I’ve been bombarded with problems, nothing huge or even worth complaining about. A couple of these issues alone would be no big deal and life would go on as normal. However, with having them all at the same time I’ve become a little overwhelmed.

It’s nothing I can’t handle and I even hesitated blogging about it. I decided to because these small issues have completely dominated my thoughts. It seems like for months I’ve been putting out fires only to have new ones sparking the flame. It’s highly annoying.

I’m the kind of chick that likes to take care of things on my own and I rarely ask for help. Yes, it’s a total pride thing and I promise I’m trying to kick the habit. After feeling defeated I realized that it was past time to take it to my Heavenly Father in prayer.

I have a huge testimony of prayer. To be honest, I felt a little dumb that I hadn’t talked to him about these issues before but since their so small individually it wasn’t until I realized that they were making me so unhappy that I realized what my solution really was – to pray and ask for peace.

Of course it worked and it was such a wonderful relief to talk to my Heavenly Father with the knowledge that he understands. I didn’t specifically pray for answers to these pea sized problems but I of course I got a couple anyway. I was enveloped in the love of our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ. It was exactly what I needed to let go of the burden and to have the encouragement to move forward in the direction that I now see so clearly.

The power of prayer is the most amazing gift.
