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.”
“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).
