"Sometimes, one prayer changes everything"

I'm one of the living proof that this statement is a fact.
In my days of growing up, I've been through a series of moments of desperation.
In fact, I believe everyone has gone through them.

I remember when I was in matriculation, it was my first time being away from my family. My family's condition was the one that made the experience worse. I felt like I was drowning every time my mom calls me to remind me of how my family's situation was like. I cried every time I got the chance. At that time, I was desperate for my family to get out of that misery. Since they only hoped for me, I could only pray and do my best in studies to get the best result hoping for a better future. My prayer was answered alright. I used to be so bad in my studies in school. But through the prayers, I could say I got the results that I wanted in matriculation.

In my second year of university, I was diagnosed with kidney stone which everyone thought it was appendicitis at first. The pain was excruciating to the point that it was hard for me to walk without the need to fall on my face. Mom said that the pain for kidney stone is similar to giving birth because she also once had kidney stone before. There was one time I was studying with him and the pain suddenly comes to me and I had to stop everything I was doing. So I went back to my room. God knows how painful it was. I prayed and prayed while I'm laid down on my bed til I passed out for a while. When I woke up, I couldn't feel the pain at all. It was like the pain never existed.

There was also that other time when....never mind. But let's just say that, in times of desperation, I always find myself praying to Him, and He answered immediately.
