I suppose when we ask such a question as ‘is it worth praying for something?’ we are really saying, ‘if I pray for a particular thing, will my prayer make a difference?’ That’s the real crux of the matter, right? Will the fact that I pray for the world, the environment, those involved in politics, and social issues, really make a difference? Will God listen to my prayer, hear my prayer, and act in some way, because of my prayer?
To many people life is but a cycle of luck and misfortune. It takes faith to see God’s involvement in the events of our lives. To those who have faith, certain events take on a whole new meaning. Many faithful Christians would tell you that there were times when their theology failed them. Some would even confess occasional disappointment with God.
