Thankful that we always have a direct line of communication with God. Prayer started over 2000 years ag as we know from the readings of Scriptures.

I pray to you now to hold New Zealand in the palm of your mighty hands. Comfort the families of those who lost loved ones. Heal broken hearts.

I just want you to know that you are awesome! If you have being feeling doubtful, self conscious, insecure, uncertain, or questioning your abilities, I want to remind you today that you are awesome.
