The power of prayer is something that we can’t always see. Does God always answer our prayers? How can we know? Sometimes we don’t even know what to pray for or about! Even when things look the worst God can still answer our imperfect, confused prayers.
Communication is vital these days. It can end conflicts even before they begin. Communiation is a skill that is becoming rarer these days. This is ironic since in 2016 there are so many ways to communicate. Communicating with our God is no less vital. In prayer we talk to God. To hear his response to go into his word.
One might think that King Solomon would ask God for protection after completely his golden temple for the Lord. Instead, he asks that everyone see it! And when they do, that God would hear their prayer! Today we are God’s temple, and through us God still does his work of evangelism.
