“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is
the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
It is God's desire for us to pray “on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests” (Ephesians 6:18). Jesus reminds us that "the Father knows what you need before you ask Him” (Matthew 6:8).
Can Prayer change things?
Though our prayers do not change God's mind, He ordains prayer as a means to accomplish His will.
"Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective."
Does Prayer change anything?
We can be confident that prayer does change things including our own hearts by faith.
"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
