Does prayer work?

If you think of prayer as a means by which to achieve all your needs and wants, then you will probably answer "no" to the question, "Does prayer work?" But if you understand prayer to be a conversation between you and God, then suddenly the question doesn't even make sense. We don't talk in terms of working-not-working when we think about the conversations we have with our friends or our family members, so why would we ask such a question about our conversations with God? This Sunday we'll give some thought to this as we worship at PT FARMS provincial park. There will be no service at our usual location on Place Street in Lucknow. The service in the park is at 11 a.m. near the barn (ask for directions at the gate). Bring your lawn chairs.
