What Happens When We Pray?

Artwork for Selections from Listener Favourites, Volume 3: Walk Humbly with Your God

We’ve all heard it said that we never stand taller than when we kneel before God. But what happens when we offer our prayers and petitions to God? Does He change His mind? Can we alter His plan or reverse His course? If not, then why pray? In this message, we zoom in on Abraham’s passionate intercession on behalf of Lot and his family in the face of the imminent destruction of Sodom. By analyzing Abraham's prayer, we can understand the struggle that occurs between petition (what we ask for) and desire (why we ask) and gain insight into the important role prayer plays in our lives. As we do, we’ll learn to pray with confidence before the throne of grace.
