Prayer: Does It Work?

1 John 5:14
This is the confidence we have before him: If we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

Baptismal Speech:

Before we start let me ask you people to think of something. I will give you 5 seconds to think but don’t say it, just keep it in your mind. Ready?!What do you pray for?

Now I will share my testimony with you.

I love reading words of wisdom, be it on books, portraits and other forms of media. During my high school days I happen to pass by the bulletin board beside the teacher’s office. The note caught my attention and I read something like this.

God answer prayers in 3 ways

1. If God answers your prayer, He is strengthening your faith.

2. If He says wait, He is testing your patience.

3. And if He says no, He has a better plan for you.

Fast-forward when I am working in Saudi Arabia. That time I was a lukewarm Christian attending an underground church. I used to pray for material things such as a big house, a high paying job, a fancy car, and many more. How materialistic right?!

Now fast-forward again. 3 years had passed and when my job contract was about to end I prayed again, “God, with this world full of false churches and teachers, I want to belong to a group of real believers next time I attend church.” And with all honesty, I searched and found many churches on the internet but seen one that really caught my attention. Then I still continued to pray for the high paying job, big house, fancy car and many more.

And after 5 long years, with the grace of God, I still don’t have a big house, a high paying job, nor a fancy car but God answered one prayer through my good friend. And that answered prayer is the very same reason why I am speaking in front of you now. (Unbroken lineage of churches since the day of John the baptist)

According to the bible:

1 John 5:14

This is the confidence we have before him: If we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

So let me ask you again.

What do you pray for?

How to be saved:

Repent today and trust Jesus/Yeshua
