We live in a world that prefers testing and proving every phenomenon and the question of whether prayer works has drawn its fair share of controversy. There are many today who ask innocently:does prayer affect external situations in any way? There are many others who have asked this question:does prayer to God have any effect on the person making the prayer?
Undoubtedly,prayer and especially intercessory prayer is what a committed Christian existence is about Christians are meant to intercede for themselves,others and about the world even when it would appear to some as though all such prayer were of no avail.
Bible believing Christians who are members of the Evangelical Christian Prayer Ministry believe unwaveringly in the power of personal and corporate prayer and that prayer does really change things in the believer,in people who are prayed for and in world affairs.
Learning The “Secrets” of Resources
Bangor University’s Professor Leslie Francis has conducted 31 experiments in relation to prayers’ effectiveness.
The Best Advice About Churches I’ve Ever Written
The experiments involved hundreds of people who were recovering from surgery;these people would randomly be divided into two groups of which one was prayed for and the other was not. None of the people involved were told they were being prayed for.
The results emanating from the study were kind of staggering.
The studies showed that patients who were beneficiaries of prayer even without their knowledge had a higher likelihood of getting better.
Another noted scholar called Dr Laws from the University of Manchester has said that prayer that requests God to do a thing has relevance if the person making it has a specific understanding of God.
There are several groups who focus on prayer exclusively such as the ladies intercessory prayer groups, intercessory prayer healing teams, cancer prayer network, intercessory worship groups and even prayer network online among others who will be willing to pray with you and for you regardless of whether you are a member of the Evangelical Christian prayer Ministry or not. All the believers involved in all these groups have accepted Jesus as their personal savior and strive to follow his teachings;they have also decided to commit themselves to intercessory prayers for people with different needs in their personal lives.
There are people who have been told by their physicians that they had only months or even weeks to live but had the verdict given by their doctor overturned by the power of fervent prayer.
If you connect with any of the groups mentioned above who are part of the Evangelical Christian prayer Ministry,you can freely communicate to them your specific need and they will pray for you and you can rest assured your details remain confidential unless you want to come and testify after God has answered your prayers.
