Prayer shows your faith in Me—faith that I will bring the solutions, show you the way, work in people’s lives, and even do the impossible when necessary. It also shows that you are depending on Me, and this pleases Me greatly.
I work through both your spoken prayers and the unspoken prayers of your heart, but when you put your prayer into words, this is a greater manifestation of your faith. This glorifies Me and acknowledges that I am the One who performs miracles, supplies for you, protects you, and guides you.
Prayers always have an effect. When you pray, things happen. I may not always give you the answer that you ask for or expect, but I promise to answer according to what I know is best. I have committed Myself to answer every prayer.
