Does Prayer Still Works

Does prayer still works?  Most often wonder if by praying they will get the answers to their burning questions or have their prayers answered.  By reading the bible, we see that by praying to our Heavenly Father, He answers our prayers.  At times, it may not be the answer that we need, but that does not means that He does not listen to us.

In the book of Daniel, chapter 9:3-5: Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications with fasting, sackcloth and ashes.  And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession…  In this passage, we can see that Daniel who was living in Babylon at the time was praying to the Lord for his people.

In the book of Exodus chapter 33, Moses pleaded with the Lord because the Lord was going to destroy the Israelites because of their rebellion.  By this prayer, the Lord relented from the harm which He said He would do to His people.

The book of Philippians, chapter 4:6-7 states as follows:  “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

But why do we pray?  The bible tells us that prayer is the way that we communicated with our Heavenly Father.  By praying to Him, it starts the relationship that He wants to have with us His children.  Although He already knows everything about us as in the book of Jeremiah 1:5

” Before I formed you in the womb I knew you and before you were born I set you apart and appointed you a prophet to the nations…”


 Will All Our Prayers Be What We Want To Hear

We are no different from anyone else and at times the answer that the Lord gives us is No.  It can be disappointing, however, this is where we need to have faith in Him to believe that He knows what is best for us.  When the answer is no, it is not because He does not love us, but it is because it is not in His will for us to have what we have prayed for.

Have you ever wished/prayed for something so badly and when you finally receive it, you are like, I can’t believe I wanted this.  It has not lived up to your expectation.  So think of it this way, when the Lord tells us no, it is not because He doesn’t love us, but quite the opposite, it is because He loves us that is why some of our requests are not answered.
