What Does Prayer Change?

PRAYER

When Solomon had ended his prayer, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.- 2 Chronicles 7:1

“Prayer does change things, all kinds of things. But the most important thing it changes is us. As we engage in this communion with God more deeply and come to know the One with whom we are speaking more intimately, that growing knowledge of God reveals to us all the more brilliantly who we are and our need to change in conformity to Him. Prayer changes us profoundly.”― R.C. Sproul

“Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.” -Soren Kierkegaard

“Prayer may not change things for you, but it for sure changes you for things.” -Samuel M. Shoemaker
