Does God Answer our Prayers?
From one end of the Bible to the other, there is the record of those whose prayers were answered----men and woman who turned the tide of history by prayer.
For example Elijah prayed and God sent fire from Heaven to consume the offering on the alter he had built in the presence of God's enemies.
Elisha prayed and the son of the Shunammite woman was raised from the dead.
Hannah prayed and God gave her a son.
Paul prayed and dozens of Churches were born.
These peoples prayers were the natural outflow of their Godly lives lived for Gods glory, and from their deep inter faith that was pleasing to God.
God is still answering prayers for His people; today, 2 Chronicles 7:14 says "If my people will pray and seek my face I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
