This year is moving so fast. March has arrived. I hope your walk with God is getting stronger each day. I see prayer as the very oxygen that keeps your faith life going.

It is in those times, we pour out our hearts to Him; in praise, in worship, in grief, in sorrow, in supplication, in helplessness, name it- prayer is the place for it. Prayer is our constant communication to God and His key communication channel to us. Prayer is also an important pathway to our destinies. It is on the altar of prayer that God guides and directs your footsteps as you develop a deeper relationship with Him, trusting Him to lead you in the way that He has created for you.
