Beyond the prohibits of circumstances, beyond the brooding about inexpressible repressions, beyond exhaustion, prayer is a vital essence that must not wait for such things to pass
The duties of life, the amuses of life, have their necessary place, but when the power of prayer is left to languish, you allow a stoop into cheerlessness and misery, for it is the only way one's spirit can be expressed. (1 Corinthians 14:15 KJV).
Prayer has a way of being an instrument by which to carry out solutions and delight. It has a way of releasing the mind from torment.
There is a way HOW TO PRAY. It is the way Jesus taught the people how to pray. I call it parallel prayer. Jesus said when you pray for forgiveness it needs to be counter to your forgiveness of others.
