Season 1 – Episode 6 – Does Prayer Change Things?
Introduction to Episode:
During this episode, we study prayer and the concept of what and who prayer changes. We explore the question, can we change the will or mind of God? As we explain the answer, another question pops up, why pray? Humans are often never satisfied with the answers to our prayers and we can be extremely vocal about the answer. Throughout our conversation, we are given three reasons on why we should pray and what prayer does to us as a people. Rev. Shane Folks give us his meaning to the word ‘prayer’ stating it is a two way connection. Because we are a child of the Father, we can go directly to him in prayer. We learn that our prayer does not bother God yet he turns his ear to us and listens.
