house of prayer

The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.
--Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) Danish philosopher, theologian and author.

  1. Hey Mark - I like the way you positioned your camera so that the window is in the middle of the doorway. Nice job.

    You have shared an excellent quote as well. So often our prayers are a wish list of things we want, and not what God wants for us.

  2. Great post, Mark!! I agree with you...
    I love the Appalachian Mountains too!!
    I would love to follow your inspirational blog.
    Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones!!
    God may bless you all!!
