Prayer is very important and it is enlightening. Prayer is a blessing from the Lord which I am personally thankful for as I get to talk to Him. God is always listening and He will answer your prayers according to His will.
“Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors!" - Matthew 24:32-33
