Question and Answer

What is “the prayer of faith,” and does it always work? Question and Answer James uses this term in a passage that is not easily understood (5:15). It seems to promise more than it always delivers: divine healing in response to “the prayer offered in faith” by the elders of the church. That sounds simple enough, but there are two additional...

How far should a Christian go with political involvement? Some people say that this world is not our home and that we should just trust the Lord, looking ahead to what God has promised us eternally. Others seem to feel there is a place for Christians to protest against practices that contradict what the Bible clearly teaches, such as abortion.

So much seems wrong in our culture today. I feel like it’s a struggle to get things done well, to get polite treatment in public institutions, and to hold people to the promises they have made. But, I hesitate at times to speak up because it seems like we’re told as Christians to be nice. I need to know how to think about this. Question and...

I’ve been a Christian for a long time, and I started out praying a lot, but it just seemed like my prayers weren’t being answered. I began to think that maybe only special people get their prayers answered—and maybe I wasn’t spiritual enough. I just stopped praying for things and direction, so I wouldn’t feel bad at not getting what I asked...

Is it showing a lack of faith when we bring before God the same prayer requests over and over again? Is this what the Word of God is warning us against when it refers in the Scripture to “vain repetition”? Question and Answer My understanding of “vain repetitions” found in Matthew 6:7 is pagan practice of praying in chants and formulated...

Does God hear the prayer of really bad people? There are some really wicked people in the world, and I can’t imagine that a holy God would ever listen to people like Hitler, Mussolini, or Saddam Hussein. Question and Answer The Bible seems to indicate that God not only listens to wicked people but also responds to right prayers. The Bible...

We had a woman at work give notice, and we didn’t want her to go. So, I prayed about it. But she still quit. Who let me down? She or God? Also, I have been praying for years about a family member’s illness and still, I have not seen healing? Why aren’t my prayers answered? Question and Answer The experience of unanswered prayer is one of...

Lately I’ve been seeing people in church texting during the service, even when Scripture is read and during prayer. Or, they leave to answer a call. I have never heard a preacher or speaker talk about this, but to me it seems wrong. Question and Answer Such increasing disregard for sacred space and for a service devoted to honoring God should...

I was taught not to pray for the leaders of the church, only to ask them to pray for me. Since the apostle Paul was a devout Christian and deeply committed to Christ, why did he ask for prayer in Ephesians 6:19? Question and Answer Your question merits much reflection on our part. The apostle Paul was one of the godliest men who ever lived.

I have tried to find a Scripture reference to explain the use of “in Jesus’ name” we pray at the end of prayers and can only come up with all the references to doing everything “in His name” which of course would include praying. A lost loved one has insisted that this is not necessary. Could you please give your thoughts on the subject?
