Prayer... what connects us, so intimately, to the Creator. This is a significant element of healing.
It is okay to pray for struggles to be removed from your life. However, keep a right perspective regarding the answer of that prayer... and the timing of the answer.
The Lord loves us too much to answer our request before we are truly ready. This can be a painful reality to walk through, yet it yields the very best result for the part of puzzle we fill.
