Have you ever prayed an intercessory prayer on behalf of someone else? What was the outcome?

Posted: July 22, 2018 in Uncategorized

Yes, I have; and he always answers: the answer is either, “Yes”, “No”, or “Not now.” I have prayed for people to come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior, and it has happened. I have prayed the same prayer and never seen the results. I have prayed for healing, my own and others’; I have seen it happen sometimes, others not. Skeptics claim “unanswered” prayer is somehow “proof” that Christianity is false, delusional. But they are the ones who have set up a straw man…or should I say, a straw God. They want scientific proof that prayer “works”, as if God is obligated to follow the laws he created in the first place, and that he created for us, not the other way around. We are not the ones who worship a “cosmic Santa Claus”; it is they who foist a cosmic Kris Kringle on us. They seem to think our God is like a supernatural gumball machine or genie in a bottle: put in a coin, get out a gumball, or, speak the right words, get your wish. This IS what prosperity preachers like Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis preach, but that’s nothing but witchcraft with a “Christian” facade. Speak the right spell or incantation, and magic can happen; you can even speak things into existence and control the weather! As I said, God always answers prayer, but like any earthly father, the answer is not always “yes”. No good father gives his children everything they ask for; that’s a sure-fire way to create a monster. No. Children must be told “No” and “Later” and “We’ll see”, and they probably are a lot more than they are told “Yes”! I know I was!
