Because sometimes I lose things. Keys, ear buds, phone. Small things, but I'm always heard.
Because I have much and am thankful for a medium in which to express my gratitude.
Because I know I am heard.
Because when a school collapses in Haiti or people flee from their homes in the Democratic Republic of Congo from advancing troops I feel like I should do something. Because my heart hurts for people I've never met and it's not practical or probable to travel there myself to help. And even if I did, what would I do? Because I'm safe in my warm home, no troops advancing toward me with malice. Schools here are built steady and sure. So I'm grateful for prayer so I can send my heart toward heaven to help alleviate suffering. Even if it's small, it's still significant in my mind. Because He always hears me.
