Prayer and the real world

"Why do you pray?" was the question my teenage class discussed in Sunday School recently. One boy had provoked the question by asking what you do when you're not getting the results you hope for when you pray. "Just keep praying," another student said with a conviction that some of us knew came from having done that through some challenges of her own. As we continued to encourage him, the conversation turned again to why we pray.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
