Does prayer work? Anonymous 09/12/2021 (Sun) 06:59:10 No.1480
I don't suppose there is any proof that prayers works, like prove that God does answer prayer? I guess that's kind of unprovable. If only there was a study done about how many people actually receive answers to their prayers. Here is some scientific proof that prayer promotes good health and longer life. https://www.newsmax.com/health/headline/prayer-health-faith-medicine/2015/03/31/id/635623/
For me it helps me with my worries and make me reflect.
>>1480 Usually when my grandma and I pray about something together it works. I haven't counted the number of times, but I don't know a single time when it hasn't worked. Of course we don't pray for a million dollars or anything, but we always make it through whatever hardship we prayed about. That's enough proof for me.
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him. 1 John 5:14-15
>>1480 Prayer accrues heavenly treasure that devalues the perishable rewards of the world in contrast.
