Prayer

If you believe in the power of prayer, as I do, that prayer really works (one way or another, according to God's Will), then I would suggest that you visit our Daily Bible Study Prayer Requests each day. While it is solely to God that we must pray, since only God answers prayer, having others join in prayer, righteous-intent prayer, is Biblically sound.

The Prayer Requests page is updated once each day to include all of the prayers received during the past 24 hours (the reason that some prayer requests go online within an hour after they are sent, while others can take 23 hours; also, some are not received - always use "Prayer Request" as the subject of the email, and resend it if it does not appear online within 24 hours from the time that it is sent). I never refuse to publish any genuine prayer request. Although I could now very easily automate the Prayer Requests page, I have not done that because some (very, very few) requests are not published either because they are not actual prayer requests (e.g. someone making a token "prayer request" while including a spam ad) or they are hostile or unlawful (e.g. slanderous or threatening to some other person).

Prayer

Holy Bible Some have commented that prayer requests occasionally include "points of doctrine" that are regarded as incorrect. I am aware of that, but I do not refuse to publish prayer requests for that reason, nor do I ever edit or censor any prayer request that is published. The reason is simply because prayers are to God, not to me, or any other human, living or dead. The prayer requests page is here to enable others, who wish to do so, to lend their voice to another person's prayer to God, if they wish others to do so - a Biblically sound, and Biblically encouraged, practice:

"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." (James 5:16 KJV)

"These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brethren."

What does the Bible actually say about prayer? Who should we pray to?

"And it came to pass in those days, that He went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God." (Luke 6:12 KJV)

"Who in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto Him that was able to save Him from death, and was heard in that He feared" (Hebrews 5:7 KJV)

"they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is" (Acts 4:24 KJV)

"in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." (Philippians 4:6 KJV)

"For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers" (1 Peter 3:12 KJV)

How should we pray?

"And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses." (Mark 11:25-26 KJV)

"Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." (Matthew 21:21-22 KJV)

"I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting." (1 Timothy 2:8 KJV)
