And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. 1 John 5:14
That is a powerful promise from God’s Word. God has chosen to use prayer, not only to bring about His will, but also to move and change our hearts. That is why we desperately need a strong prayer team.
We can plan, work hard, help those in need, and even preach the Gospel, but if we’re not praying, I don’t think we’ll be able to witness what God’s will is for our church.
