The Power of Prayer

Prayer is one of the most used universal instincts. Most people, at some point in their life, pray. In fact, a study by (ComRes) in (2018) found that a fifth of non-Christians will pray in a crisis.

Often prayer is uttered in response to a need. We often refer to any problem we prayed for being answered as a coincidence. But is it a coincidence? Or was God listening?

The crux of all of our relationships revolves around communication. Prayer is an example of that. It’s a practice when we stop and communicate with the creator of all things. It’s a space where we can lay all our fears, anxieties, and worries out and just be with God.

Romans 8:26 “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We don't know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us….”

What does prayer do? Is prayer about solving our problems, or is it about changing our hearts and attitude?

Answers to prayer aren’t always about being in a place where there are no troubles or problems or hard work; it’s about being in the middle of those things and still having peace in your heart. That’s the peace of God. It’s like the deep ocean current when there are the winds and waves on the surface but stillness underneath.

However, prayer not only changes us, but it also changes situations. Of course, you can’t prove the existence of God by answers to prayer. But it’s amazing what happens when we pray.
