Here’s what prayer does do… Prayer changes everything at work in any given situation, making possible either a miraculous and instantaneous deliverance or the slow, progressive change and growth necessary for overcoming adversity.
Handling life without prayer is like playing basketball with a flat ball. It just doesn’t work. And we expect prayer to make us pro players who never miss a shot overnight. But prayer really gives us an inflated ball—better equipment, better skills, better opportunities, more strength and speed and stamina—so the game becomes winnable.
Prayer isn’t a magic formula that instantly and easily fixes everything.
But prayer is definitely powerful to change the variables of any situation to which we apply its power.
Prayer changes everything!
