Faith and Prayer

Stories of answered prayers can strengthen our faith and offer hope and reassurance. While we don't know what causes God to answer prayer, we strive to pray from a place of authenticity and humility. When you are in a challenging moment, remember answered prayers in your own lives and the lives of those around you.

The power of prayer is undeniable to those who pray regularly. True stories of prayer making a difference in a moment, a life, or the world inspire each of us to examine and strengthen our faith life regularly. Reach deep inside to access the power of praying to change our lives and change our hearts.

How can we pray effectively? While there is no one formula for effective prayers, we can strive to deepen our prayer life. Practical tips, Bible-based advice and stories from other Christians can help us learn to pray with honesty and faith, as we strive to pray effectively.

Unanswered prayers may contain messages all their own. Persistent prayer is one way to respond to unanswered prayers, and persistence in prayer is always a good idea. Learn from others' prayer stories to see how they coped with unanswered prayers and to look for ways to deepen your prayer life.
