Prayer Causes Things to Happen

posted 9 Mar 2012, 01:56 by Peter Booth
For those who weren't at ID this last week, we had a session on prayer. We watched a couple of videos and considered some things which are helpful to remember about prayer. We also thought and prayed about the worldwide persecuted church, and then prayed for minority people groups within China using some helpful guides.
Below are the two video snippets we watched. In the first John Piper talk about how prayer causes things, and challenges us that we'd be fools to not take the opportunity to affect things in the universe for Christ's glory. In the second, Francis Chan gives an example of how 'ridiculous' his life has been and how God wonderfully answers prayer. 

You can find the full sermon video here of Francis Chan speaking at the '2011 Desiring God Pastor's Conference,' and a lower-res version for slow connections here.
