Everyone has heard the little saying, "prayer changes things." Some people might even think it is a verse in the Bible, but no, I don't think you will find that exact verse anywhere in the Holy Bible. It is a nice little phrase that man has come up with that may be true. Being a peacemaker by nature, I don't like conflict or controversy in my life, but I am going to step out of my comfort zone for a minute and ask for some responses to this phrase. I'm sure that I'll get many different opinions, but I would really like to know what you think. Does prayer really change things? Or, does God already have everything in our lives mapped out to where there is nothing we can do to change what is already going to happen? I certainly don't claim to be a theologian, nor do I think I have all the answers. The one thing I do know for certain is that prayer changes me! Please leave your comments and let me know if you think that by praying, God will change the outcome of a situation, circumstance, etc. Feel free to use examples from your personal life or scriptural references.
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
