Regularly I pray for people, especially when they have problems coming from ill-health or loneliness and I pray for their encouragement too. Also I pray everyday for close family. Often when I am praying for individuals it is that that they are in good health, are happy and free from hardship.
I believe in prayer. I believe that a person can sometimes know that they are being prayed for too. I need quiet time which in a busy world is often hard to find in life. During the lockdown, praying, walking and listening to God turned out to be a very precious and peaceful part of the day whilst on my local allocated exercise walk.
