There is a reason we seek God. It is an inherent need within to return to that from which we came and to maintain the spiritual thread between ourselves and our creator.
A spiritual connection to God may be an invisible connection, but it is stronger than any physical or visible one in this world.
Prayer, when done faithfully, is not a repetition. It is a communion with God. A covenant that strengthens your spirit and your light, bringing you closer to Him. It brings peace to a restless soul.
