On a wing and a prayer

The Power of prayer Prayer can mean different things to different people. Let’s break it down to its basic principles. If you are praying then you are usually asking for assistance (help me) or guidance (show me) with something.

If we have been given life, it is our universal right and obligation to protect that like a well-guarded treasure.   2. PROCREATE Pro – in latin means ‘for’ or ‘in agreement with’. Being someone/something who is for creation. After we’ve (the animals) ha
