For God’s people, the most critical work of the day occurs before we leave for work.
Big thinking inspires—and demands—vigorous action.
The seventh era of God’s Church—happening right now.
Some have asked: If God knows all our thoughts, why pray?
That’s a great question. There are many different reasons why we should pray, yet the most obvious is that God commands it.
“When you pray,” not “if you pray,” Christ told His disciples when explaining prayer in many passages (Matthew 6:5; Luke 11:2; 18:1). God expects us to pray.
But that really doesn’t answer the question. What we really need to understand is why God commands prayer?
How can we answer such a question? There is only one way.
Jesus Christ said we are to live by “every word of God” (Matthew 4:4; Luke 4:4). He was actually quoting the Old Testament (Deuteronomy 8:3), so His statement obviously includes the Old Testament as well as the New Testament. Christ also said, “Thy word is truth” (John 17:17).
Was Christ a prophet? There’s been a recent religious controversy about that, because the leader of 1.1 billion Roman Catholics says no. But we need to prove from God’s Word, the Bible, the answer to that question. People can prove it for themselves very easily.
