Good morning Father! This is a tough one, does prayer work? Far be it from me to be scared of a challenge. No, prayer does not work. The trust, and faith that is connected to the words you use is where prayers begin to live, and are answered. Wordy prayers have no value unless they are wrapped in Faith, and trust. The answers you look for never work unless they are aligned with my will. Try praying for the Sun to never shine again, or a dog to be a cat, or for everyone to have a million dollars, don't waste your time. Prayers that are aligned with my will always work. Pray, and pray without ceasing., then I will provide an answer. Love God!
