Here at The Salvation Army Oshawa we have a team of people who pray for you. We pray because prayer changes things!
Have you ever wondered if prayer really works? Maybe Satan has whispered to you, “Prayer is a waste of time. Forget it! Who do you think you are? What do you think you’re doing? God isn’t even listening.”
The truth is, prayer works because God is in control. As we mature in faith as we understand that God has a better view of our circumstances than we do, He can see our future.
“But his plans endure forever; his purposes last eternally” (Psalm 33:11 GNT).
God’s unlimited resources are available to you. Twenty times in the New Testament it says, “Ask.” Isn’t it encouraging to know that things out of our control are not out of God’s control?
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him” (1 John 5:14-15 NIV).
Prayer works. It isn’t a waste of your time. God is in control, and he wants to hear your prayers—he is listening! – Rick Warren Daily Hope
