Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of people say “I believe in the power of prayer.” Later, someone then said, “Don’t believe in the power of prayer. Believe in the power of the One you pray to.”

That got me to thinking… what is prayer really supposed to be? Can prayer really change things?

People pray for money, or a job, or other stuff for themselves. People pray for others for jobs, or better health, or that they will change in some fashion. But, God already has His plan. Does God change His plan if people pray? I know lots of people prayed for Caleb, but did it really help? Or was it God’s will for Caleb to be okay?

Please let me know below your thoughts. The Bible tell us we should pray without ceasing, but how and for what?
