Power of Prayer

on February 5, 2014

I’ve never been a church goer, a firm believer, religious but I’ve been working on focusing on my spiritual side more than ever lately (I strongly believe that being religious and spiritual are two very different things).  

However, I found the blog, A Hundred Affections through another blogger, A Calm Persistence (She has so many great posts!).  On the blog, is a beautifully written and completely encompassing Prayer for the Infertile.  It is by far one of the most powerful posts I have read to date and I am grateful she took the time to write such a moving piece.

Through starting this blog to let my emotions out on “paper” I have learned so much more, “met” so many people who have similar situations, and come to realize that infertility isn’t as taboo as I originally thought.  I thank God for what this experience has brought me. There is so much power in words.

    That is very true! Being religious is totally different than being spiritual. Spirituality is more hardwired into a person – part of genetics. I actually read an interesting study which explained that people who were spiritual (not religious) were less likely to be depressed because their cerebral cortex was actually thicker.
