Feel Joy

A prayer is loving conversation with God that brings us joy.

Taking time out for prayer connects us to the Divine Presence. Prayer allows us to speak directly to God, and gives us an opportunity to praise our Creator, or ask for strength, courage, and healing. Prayer helps us find our center, a sense of calm, and a spirit of joyfulness.
