Re: "The Power of Prayer"
I think praying works.
I think "prayers sent" and "blessed" are the two most grossly overused phrases in the south.
I think praying and starting the prayer with "God, we just want to invite you into this room." makes as much sense as inviting air into a room.
So, IMO the power of prayer comes from God, not the people praying.
I understand basic math.
