The Power Of Prayer

The day was long † The burden I had borne seemed heaver than I could longer bear † And then it lifted † But I did not know some one had knelt in prayer † Had taken me to God that very hour and asked the easing of the load † And He † in infinate compassion † had stooped down and taken it from me.

We cannot tell how often as we pray for some bewildered one † hurt and distressed † The answer comes † But many times those hearts find sudden peace and rest † Some one had prayed † and faith † a reaching hand † took hold of God † and brought Him down that day!

So many hearts have need of prayer † Oh † let us pray!

–Saint Maximillian Kolbe Pray For Us.
