Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 
Galatians 1:3-5

Yes, this is RWR's official Week of Prayer, and thanks for stopping by to view it. 

The theme for TOTW this week is Prayer--it can be practically anything; and essay, a story with a prayer in it, a stand-alone prayer, a personal story on prayer, a poem-style prayer, a psalm. . .anything.

I'm going to assume that everyone has heard the story of Cain and Abel (If not it can be found in Genesis chapter four), and this verse is after Cain killed him and left all of his family (wife excluded, who was either Cain's sister or niece) and had children of his own. 

And she (Eve) gave birth to a son and named him Seth, saying, “God has granted me another child in place of Abel, since Cain killed him.” Seth also had a son, and he named him Enosh.
   At that time people began to call on the name of the LORD. 
Genesis 4:25b-26

Now pay special attention to that last part. . .At that time people began to call on the name of the LORD.

The official start of prayer. Incredible.

Just think. . .There was a time when prayer didn't even exist. We are so, so blessed. . .and do we even realize it? Everyone (Jesus excluded) forgets to pray at some point in their life. We forget about the amazing connection we have with God. I love reading this passage, because it reminds that prayer didn't always exist, and it helps me not take it for granite. . .what about you? What helps remind you of His blessings to us? Not necessarily prayer, any blessing. . .what does God use to bring you back to Him?~Elizabeth
