or some prayer is just wishful thinking, or something we do to be polite, like saying bless you when someone sneezes. This is not what the Bible teaches at all, Prayer is Powerful! James 5:16 tells us "The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results."In this talk we discuss developing a discipline of prayer and going to God first, instead of after we’ve exhausted all of our time, energy, and effort.
