Does it Matter that we Pray?
But wait. God in His sovereignty has decided to work through the prayers of those who trust in Him. He didn't have to do that but he did so in order that we might receive 'training for reigning' in this life. Prayer creates a channel for the Holy Spirit to work in both the situation prayed for and the one doing the praying. It changes things and us! When I was really ill there were long periods when I couldn't pray for myself. I was too weak and too sad to do so. That was when I learned the power of a praying wife! Also, I was carried on the prayers of loving Christian believers in many lands and churches. So, let's join dogs and boys to keep on keeping on in prayer. 'People ought to pray always and not to give up'! Hang in there!
