This is my daughter Stephanie and her cousin Kimberly. They have been good friends since they were very little. Kim lives in North Carolina, and we live on Long Island, but the distance doesn’t matter. Their friendship takes off right where they left it the last time they were together.

I find my relationship with God to be similar to this, however I try not to have long periods where I don’t talk or see Him. He never misses a beat, but if I wait too long in between my prayer, I get out  of step with Him.  This is what the Lord says: The heaven is my  throne room and the earth is my footstool. ( Isaiah 66:1) If someone has moved in our relationship it’s me.

Lately my allergies have made me drowsy, and I sleep more. I will wake up late, and try to cram a lot of prayer into a short period of time. This never works well, and my day will feel a bit out of wack. I have learned to place the prayer time into the day since it won’t do to miss it entirely. If you want to be  mad, upset and cranky, leave out prayer and there you have it!

My constant prayer has come right from my heart. I wake up asking the Lord for wisdom and guidance on this one. It is entirely over my head. We need a Maternity Home in Suffolk County where I live. There is nothing for women over the age of 21, which happens to be more than half of the women coming to Pregnancy Centers in our area. My friends are also as adamant about this issue.

Prayer is what will make the difference. No one who ever did anything for God did it in their own strength.God doesn't Get the glory when we use what he has given us to work out problems. He receives all glory honor and praise when He takes over and does what we can’t.

When we look to God with all our hearts souls and strength,  He will show up in power and the authority of heaven! Maybe you have circumstances right now that are less than perfect. WE all have times like this. We wouldn't be human if we were free from trials all the time.

The Body of Christ, is made up of believers who are in the local church to lean on when we have a need. We were not made to live alone, by ourselves and carry every burden ourselves. This is also why God made the family. When these gifts work according to God's design we can receive comfort from others. Call someone today and let them know what is on your heart! Pray with them, and if necessary do it once a week. We have busy schedules, but praying with someone over the phone can be an easy alternative to meeting somewhere.
Blessings and love.
