Prayer is the most vital part of a Christian's life. We must keep an open line of communication with God. Everyone finds themselves in moments of trials and temptations and only God has the perfect way of escape. Do you struggle with spiritual pain-double mindedness, insecurity, fear, hopelessness, unforgiveness, disobedience, hurt, loneliness, rejection, discouragement, anger or a host of other imperfections? Prayer will help; God wants to be your comfort and guide. There is pardon and protection in prayer. God is the main character of prayer-not us. We must bring our petitions to Him-not our wants and persuasions. The excitement of the Christian walk is to find God's will and ask Him for it. The prayers in this book are full of faith and praise and have brought healing and comfort to many. Pray them verbatim or use them as a pattern for your own needs. Victory comes to those who pray. The privilege and responsibility of prayer belongs to those who are saved. Life's Lessons is a group of short stories that introduce people to Jesus, our Savior and Lord, through everyday living. Even if one has not read the Bible, everyday life testifies to the sovereignty of God. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) "And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him." (I John 5:15) Norma K Riggs is a happily married mother and grandmother living in Windsor, Virginia. She holds the degree of Bachelor of Theology from the International College of Bible Theology.
