Of all the times in my life where I feel at peace and find strength is when I pray.  When I was sick a friend of mine who is really on the fence on what to believe asked what she could do for me. I asked her if she would pray for me.

"I doubt that'll do any good Joanne" she said
"But, don't you see He's been waiting for you to talk to Him, and this is the perfect reason to...don't ya think? If you pray I know he'll hear you." I answered

In that silence where all distractions melt away, I find peace in prayer....and our world needs alot of this.



  1. Amen to this! This sounds like Alison Krauss, it's a beautiful video.

  2. I can't access the video and I like Alison Krauss. But there is nothing more powerful than prayer. Next time, ask them to pray WITH you. If they say it won't do any good, you say hey it won't do any harm.

  3. I recently discovered (and fell in love with) Allison Kraus. I thought it sounded like her and see that it was. Everything about this post is absolutely beautiful and serene.
    Thanks, Joanne!

  4. I love this song. I heard it first on the movie, "O Brother! Where Art Thou?" which has the best music. Good message--prayer is the only way.

  5. @ Ginny~ Yes it is her- I just love her voice!

    @ anthony stemke~ You are right! I should have asked her to pray with me!

    @ Thank You her voice is angelic

    @ Susan Kane~ I have the soundtrack and movie. I love the music from this movie!

  6. Praying is where you can tell your "story" and there is no critic and always an open ear.

  7. @ Maeve Frazier~ You are so right!

  8. Prayer is the best thing that you could do for your friend or anyone!

  9. Amen and Amen! I love the music video! What a great way to start out my Saturday morning.

    Thank you, ~Ron

  10. What a nice way to enjoy a cup of tea on a rainy Sunday afternoon! You're right, prayer is so powerful. " When prayers go up, blessings come down" It was great spending the week with you. Miss you and love you, Lisa xoxo

  11. @ Kim @ Stuff could~ Yes I agree!

    @ T.O. Geezer~ I am so glad you enjoyed it!

    @ Lisa~ Thanks! I had a great week too! The kids miss their cousins. I feel the week went by too fast! It was so fun! Love you too!

  12. Beautiful post, beautiful song. I believe in the power of prayer.

  13. We need more prayer time. There's nothing much better than a good heart to heart with the one who's responsible for us being here in the first place and the one who has invited us to share eternity with Him. No better time to get to know Him than now.

    Tossing It Out

  14. I always accept a little prayer, a little extra can never hurt :).

    I haven't heard of her before, just beautiful!
