Does Prayer Change Anything?

In Eric Rauch’s article, “Does Prayer Change Anything,” Mr. Rauch observes the following:

“One of the best descriptions of the purpose of prayer can be found in Arthur W. Pink’s book, The Sovereignty of God.”

He quotes:

“Prayer is not so much an act as it is an attitude—an attitude of dependency, dependency upon God. Prayer is a confession of creature weakness, yea, of helplessness. Prayer is the acknowledgment of our need and the spreading of it before God.”

Paul said it another way: “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
