Re: "The Power of Prayer"
I believe in the power of prayer and I have witnessed people be healed through this power. I have heard many testimony from people who were diagnosed with cancer, saw cancer on x-rays/mri's etc. The church (body of Christ) laid hands on them, prayed over them, asked God for deliverance/healing. When surgeons went in to remove cancer it was not there. I have heard many sermons on prayer. I have heard pastors say you should pray for something until it happens. I have heard pastors say once you have requested someothing or made your feelings known to God there is no need to restate them. IDK which one I agree with,but I do feel as if He hears my requests and knows my needs. I also know that He answers all prayers-but not always in the way that I want them to be answered. Sometimes a "no" from God is what's best for us. I think the power of prayer is found in the individual and within the group. Group prayer is powerful emotionally and can move people to feelings that don't often have. When numerous believers hearts' cry out in unison for a need in the life of another person-there is POWER in that.
