So many times in our lives we find ourselves praying to God to help us or guide us. These prayers are good and they connect us with God. No prayer is a bad prayer (because you are praying). Another type of prayer that is needed in our world today is intercessions for others. I think that everyone has been touched by someone with cancer or disease at some point in their lives. So many people are suffering, confused, alone or discouraged. They all need our prayers.
