Aside from prayer being work in that prayer must be intentional and all-inclusive in its scope to the point that we keep a notebook of people and ministries for whom and for which we are praying, prayer is a means to an end . . . the impactful words of Jesus recur . . . “You have not because you ask not.” If that was all I heard throughout this chapter, that would have been enough to enkindle fire into my prayer life. Therefore, this is my prayer: “Dear Jesus, I am so sorry that I do not pray enough or arduous enough to make a difference in the outcomes I am seeking. Please, Lord, help my doubting heart believe that prayer does, indeed, make a difference in all that I am praying. Amen and Amen.”
