Prayer is a process of communication between a person and who or what that person believes to be their higher power.

Prayer is the Answer
, Ellen G. White (Author and one of the founders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
What is an Adventist
"Prayer is the answer to every problem in life. It puts us in tune with divine wisdom, which knows how to adjust everything perfectly. So often, we do not pray in certain situations because from our standpoint the outlook is hopeless. But nothing is impossible with God. Nothing is so entangled that it cannot be remedied. No human relation is too strained for God to bring about reconciliation and understanding. No habit is so deeply rooted that it cannot be overcome. No one is so weak that he cannot be made strong. Whatever we need or desire, if we trust God, He will supply it. If anything is causing worry and anxiety, let us stop rehearsing the difficulty and trust God for healing, love, and power."
, Becky Tirabassi (speaker and author on the subject of prayer):
"Lord, I make a decision to pray for one hour a day for the rest of my life." On that Saturday in February 1984, Becky Tirabassi made a non-negotiable time commitment with God. She was convinced she could not be all that she desired to be for God if she was not regularly alone with Him. Through five practical and manageable principles, her prayer life has come alive:
sk of God in prayer
isten for God in prayer
nclude God's Word in prayer
isit with God in written prayer

Eternal God, source of life and love, I turn to you in my illness. Grant me the courage to grow though this experience and the confidence to trust in your continued presence. Blessed are you, eternal God, the source of all healing. Amen.
May love hold you, Peace enfold you. May you be held In the palm of God's hand. Amen
