“It seems people cannot stop wondering about how prayer works. This is especially true at our most desperate moments.
Perhaps you are experiencing such a moment in your life right now. There is nothing more ordinary than wanting immediate resolution to a crisis—our own or that of a loved one.
Fear and worry are brutal to bear, especially where matters of survival are concerned. We become desperate to know how we will get through a financial crisis or an illness or a legal matter.
Understand this: Prayer influences actions that are in the process of unfolding.
Heaven works behind the scenes. And yet . . . every other person’s life is woven into the events of our own. Our needs—and therefore our prayers—must blend somehow into the “greater good of the whole.
No situation is just about us. Prayers are always answered, and in a way that serves all concerned.”
