In a world where innocent people too often suffer at the hands of cruelty and injustice, it may sometimes seem that prayer isn't of much practical help. Yet the Biblical promise "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" James 5:16. shouldn't be brushed aside. Prayer is vitally important, because prayer involves turning to our creator for help, and there simply isn't a greater power.
Because we can't physically see God, we may be inclined to think He is an abstraction, of little help in the face of war, starvation, homelessness, hostage-taking. Actually, nothing but divine power can impel solutions to such challenges. It's precisely because God is omnipresent, almighty Spirit, unseen by material eyes, that our prayers to Him can have an impact on even the most complex troubles around the globe.
