The Power of Prayer

The Power of Prayer

God is working both in us and through us.
Single Session Bible Study

Overview

It's the first response to news of a sick or hurting friend—"I'll pray for you." The Bible tells us that prayer has the power to heal. So what are we to think when scientific studies seem to suggest that prayer may actually hurt patients instead of help them? It is important to understand the nature of prayer, and how it prepares us to receive and accept God's answers—whatever they may be.
