 “Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” – Psalm 119:105

This morning I dragged myself out of bed fifteen minutes earlier than usual, did a workout from YouTube in my dorm room, made gingerbread spiced coffee from Trader Joes, drank a protein smoothie with my nose plugged and repeated the mantra “it’s good for you” over and over in my head (okay it actually wasn’t that bad.

“Pray continually.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:17

If you grew up in a Christian home, one of the first things your parents probably instilled in you about your faith was the importance of prayer. They probably made you close your eyes, fold your hands and bow your head, right?

But what is prayer really? Do we have to close our eyes and fold our hands? When should we pray and what should we be praying for? The Bible has a lot to say about prayer and what role it should play in the lives of Christians.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33

In college it can be easy to get overwhelmed. Classes, jobs and life responsibilities really pile up and sometimes it feels like more than we can handle. When we are feeling in over our heads, we often try to fix things on our own, when what we really need to do is turn to God.
