Prayers Have An Impact

“God hears us whenever we ask Him and we know also that He gives us what we ask from Him.” 1 John 5:15 (GNT)

Prayer works because God is in control. The basis of all miracles is God's sovereignty.

Do you ever wonder if prayer really works?  You’re praying about something and Satan whispers to you, “This is a waste of time. Forget it!  Who do you think you are?  What do you think you’re doing?  God is not listening. Don’t waste your time.”

Prayer works because God is in control. The basis of all miracles is God’s sovereignty.  Why does He do one and not another?  Because God is in control.  We have to trust His wisdom and His goodness.

Ephesians 3:20 says, “God is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts or hopes.” (LB)

Prayer can do whatever God can do.  His resources are available to you.  Twenty times in the New Testament it says, “Ask.”  It’s encouraging to know that things that are out of my control are not out of God’s.  I may not be able to change a situation, but I can pray and God can change it.
