Prayer really works.
Fervent prayer about your present circumstances will be heard and answered by the Lord. Read the story in Daniel 2. Daniel was about to be put to death because others in Babylon’s palace were unable to tell the king about his dream. After praying for understanding and mercy, God revealed the impossible to Daniel. Daniel was able to see the dream the king had and tell him what it meant.
His prayer meeting turned to praise as his life was spared.
