Prayer, Deleted, is a conversation with the Lord. It is a personal relationship with God. When one prays, one is talking with the Lord and if you ask for something earnestly, you shall recieve it. Whether it be money, forgiveness, a friend to study with, as one who posted said he/she recieved. My father, a mechanic, once lost a small needle bearing out of a u-joint he was working on, and after looking for it for some time, he closed his eyes and said a prayer to the Lord, and when he opened his eyes he instantly focased on the needle bearing laying at his feet. That was one example, another would be when one prays and asks for forgiveness. When one, whom is truly saved and born again, prays for forgiveness-he/she, apon recieveing this forgiveness, feels it deeply within ones heart- it is a overwhelming feeling of its OK that you get in you heart. Almost like you heart is breaking kind of feeling except your heart isnt breaking, its that feeling in your heart thats almost undescribable. If Im not boring you, one more would be while on our way to church one morning, me and my wife were fighting with the devil, as usual he trys to attack you when your vulnerable, anyway, it wasnt a fight fight it was just words of ...........well just not happy....petty sayings and such....anyway when we pulled up to the church abd parked I just started praying outloud and my wife and kids were silent and praying with me- and I prayed for resolve and peace as to go in and recieve Gods word and all of us recieved peace and were able to have a good visit with the Lord that day-that prayer gave an overwhelming calm instantly that is hard to decribe, but definately was of God granting us that prayer for we could not have achieved that peace that way, that fast. Hope I answered your question...........................Believer
