What Is Prayer Worth?

Let’s be honest, most believers have a problem with their prayer-life. We know that we ought to pray, but we just don’t seem to be satisfied with our prayers. This article is not designed to be the end-all of what a prayer-life ought to be. In fact, if anything, it is an admission by the writer that he is just as frustrated as many of you are! But, may I also add that genuine help is on the way! No, it is not the latest trendy book by the latest trendy author telling you how to improve your prayer-life guaranteed in 10 steps or more. It is, however, help from the Master pray-er through hands-on life experience. We see God’s people in the Word of God in everyday experiences pouring out their hearts to the Lord and just at the right time, He answers their prayers for His glory and their good. For example, good King Hezekiah in Judah had a massive army of 185,000 furious Assyrians led by a ferocious king who would stop at nothing to defeat his enemies. This wicked, godless King Sennacherib had destroyed all the nations around Israel and was now boasting that he would do the same to Judah. King Hezekiah, fearing but faithful, took the boastful letter Sennacherib had sent, to the Temple and spread it out before God. The heartfelt and passionate prayer of Hezekiah brought total victory for him and the nation of Judah! But lest we think prayer is only for the times of necessity and trouble, we see men like Daniel who made it their habit to spend time with the Lord every day no matter what, even if it means personal loss to himself. Prayer is literally our lifeline to our Lord Jesus, and it is absolutely vital everyday in our Christian lives. The BBN Bible Institute is thankful to offer course number 20500, The Value of Prayer, taught by the late Dr. Ray Stedman. This delightful and insightful course sheds light on the Bible’s teaching and examples of great Bible characters who lived in daily dependence on God through prayer. We trust we will all learn to do the same as we learn the value of prayer.
