Without prayer, we can do nothing of eternal value; with prayer, nothing is impossible.
Not all prayer requests are created equally, and therefore not all prayers are the same. There are times when it takes little faith to believe that God will intervene, and then there are times that it stretches us to even begin to think that God can help in the way that we need Him to. The great news is that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The same God that has helped you before desires for you to call upon His name in your present and future trials.
