Prayer is a Powerful Thing

Every morning I pray with my students. They often will share their requests. And even more often, those prayer requests have to do with an ailing stomach, sore throat, runny nose, scraped knee, hurt get the point.

Me: Sara, what is your request?

Sara: I'm not feeling well.

Me: Would anyone like to pray for Sara?

Sweet Lil' Girl in My Class: I'll pray for her.

Me: Ok...go ahead.

Sweet Lil' Girl in My Class: Dear Lord, Please help Sara feel better because she isn't feeling well. And if she doesn't feel well, she can't learn. And God, if she can't learn, she won't be able to get a good job when we grow up. Amen.
