Prayer is certainly powerful. It an important thing in our lives. The more we pray, the closer we get to Christ, and that is the ultimate goal. When we become closer to Christ, our spiritual life grows and we ultimately become better people in the eyes of God.
There are many ways we can pray. We can pray the Rosary, pray at Eucharistic adoration, pray the Liturgy of the Hours, pray those prayers we have known since first grade, and there are so many more ways.
The more we pray, the closer we become like Christ.
The closer we are to Christ the better people we become.

Pray for the Canonization of William Joseph Chaminade
"The Lord afflicts us in diverse ways; let us profit by all our tribulations. Let nothing shake our confidence and fidelity; it is amid contradictions and tribulations that the works of God prosper, are purified and strengthened."
Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
