God controls all things, yet our doctrine of God’s sovereignty must never allow us to deny or neglect the duty of consistent prayer. Moreover, if our prayer life does not see specific answers, then we ought to seriously question our relationship with God. Our prayers ought to avail much, according to the book of James. We don’t have because we don’t ask. John said that whatever we ask in Jesus’ name will be ours.
In this concise booklet, John Reisinger explains that the Bible does not pit God’s sovereignty against the real significance of earnest prayers in a way that eliminates or reduces either. It is a helpful resource for anyone who has ever asked, “If God is sovereign, why pray?”
