If everything happens according to God’s plan, can our prayers change anything? Question and Answer Prayer by itself changes nothing, but the Lord who hears and answers prayer can change circumstances (1 Sam. 7:5–14), people (Acts 4:23–31), and, in some cases, His own dealings with people in response to prayer (Ex. 32:9–14; 2 Chron. 7:14).
