What Makes Prayer Work

Made for Glory

Have you ever wondered if prayer really works?

If so, you aren’t alone. On an almost weekly basis I will get a question about how prayer works, does prayer work, is there a secret formula to making prayer work, does prayer change God’s mind, is there even a point to prayer.

Not only do we question the validity and importance of prayer, but then once we get past those questions, we arrive at how does one pray. 

Let’s say prayer actually works. How do you pray? Is it bad if your mind wanders to your to-do list? What if you fall asleep while praying? Do you need to pray out loud or silently?

We all face these questions.

This Sunday, we’ll continue our series Made for Glory as we look at John 17:1 – 10 where we see Jesus praying. Not only that, it is his longest prayer recorded in Scripture.

Think about this for a minute: Jesus, the God of the universe in human flesh. Praying. 

That image should begin to give us an idea of how important prayer is, but we also begin to see through how Jesus prays whether or not it is okay to pray for ourselves and how to pray in general.

What we see though is that to become the person God created you to be, prayer is an integral part of that. Not only that, there is a clear picture of what that prayer looks like and feels like.

If you have ever wondered if prayer works, how to pray, or if prayer changes God’s mind, this is going to be a great Sunday to be at Revolution.

Don’t forget as well that we are starting our Christmas offering this Sunday. Click to here to get more information as to how we will be blessing others and moving the gospel forward here in Tucson.

Remember, we meet at 10am on Sunday mornings at 8300 E Speedway Blvd.
