Does prayer make any difference? Does it really change anything? Yes, says Dr. R.C. Sproul in this Crucial Questions booklet. Though we cannot hope that our prayers will change God’s mind, prevailing upon Him to act against His will, we can be sure that prayer does change things—including our own hearts. Plus, it is one of the chief means by which God carries out His will in the world.

For these reasons, Dr. Sproul argues, prayer has a vital place in the life of the Christian. In short chapters packed with practical wisdom, he unveils the purpose, the pattern, the practice, the prohibitions, and the power of prayer, calling Christians to come before God’s presence with joy and hope.

As a gifted communicator, R.C. Sproul has helped many believers grow in their understanding of such matters as the nature of God, the history of redemption, and the manner in which we are saved. Now Dr. Sproul’s lucid teaching on these vital matters is available in a series of concise booklets that are perfect for personal learning and refreshing, as well as small-group study. For a quick introduction to matters at the very core of the Christian life, for yourself or a friend, consider the Crucial Questions booklets from Reformation Trust Publishing.

Why Had God Agreed to Such a Thing?

M Preston

On page 18, Dr. Sproul discussed the situation that we read about in the book of Job with three questions beginning with "why". I hope I never forget the answers. I have custody of a 15-year old grandson and I live with my 91-year old mom who has early altzheimers. You caused me to be able to see the courtroom of heaven and a much larger reality and my purpose: thanksgiving, praise, forgiveness, repentance, prayer to the one God, Creator of everything.
