The Power Of Prayer

In March 2003, I was married to a man who suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) from an accident on his motorcycle. He was in a coma for two and a half weeks. We had several visitors come to the hospital and express their concern.
I was just remembering how powerful I felt during that time. I really think it was because people were praying for us. People used to say, “I’ll be praying for you”. I always thought that meant they would go home and pray for me. Not so. I would instantaneously feel a surge of energy that would lift me up and make me feel light. It would even seem as though it was easier to breathe. Then there were the others that would tell me, “Ok honey, I’ll pray for you”. I felt nothing from those people who did not believe in the power of their prayers. They would say the words because it was the right thing to say.
I really don’t think some people are more powerful than others when it comes to praying. I believe if you sincerely wish well and have good intentions for a person then that prayer does not know time and will be felt by the recipient immediately.
When you tell someone you will pray for them, remember how truly powerful you are. Your well wishes and thoughtful prayers have so much more power when you authentically send them with meaning and intention.
