WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PRAY?
“Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go” (John 11:41-44).
Something always happened when Jesus prayed. The account of the raising of Lazarus, a man dead for four days, is only one of many illustrating the truth that Jesus always “got through” to God and received answers to His prayers. But then, Jesus was the Son of God. He knew the will of God. He knew the rules for prayer. He lived a sinless perfect life–there was nothing between Christ and His Father. There were no clouds of doubt obscuring the heavens. He had a straight line on the “royal telephone.”
