Prayer Works!

Prayer is fundamental to every human being on the planet. All of us verbalise a form of prayer at some point in our lives. Prayer is the most accessible thing to do on the planet and yet many of us struggle with the words to truly express what is in our hearts. Prayer is a dialogue with God, not a monologue. Prayer is an expression of hunger and passion in our hearts. Prayer is the key that unlocks heaven. Prayer is the portal of God’s power. Prayer requires us to slow down and pause on what is eternal rather than what is temporal. Prayer leads to an outbreak of miracles. Prayer is God’s supply line to the front line of ministry. Prayer connects us to God. Prayer is an invitation to hang out with God. Prayer is a lifestyle, not an event. Prayer must become the air we breathe. Prayer Works!

Jesus said, ‘Pray then like this, Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven…’ (Matthew 6:9-10)

  1. How does prayer ‘work’? Does God sometimes intervene supernaturally to change the course of events that would have occurred differently had a particular prayer not be uttered?

    1. Thanks for the question Jack.

      I would answer your question by saying yes. From both a biblical and personal observation, I see God’s supernatural intervention in the daily affairs of life in response to the persistent prayers of his people.


      1. So how do you reconclie the apparent random nature of answered prayer versus unanswered prayer? Your comment about “intervention in the daily affairs of life” implies God acting supernatually in relatively trivial matters. Every day around the world there would be millions of people pleading to God for intervention to free them from such things as extreme hunger and sexual abuse, yet there prayers seem to go unanswered. What sort of ‘god’ says yes to the trivial and no to the important?
