Last week one of our newsletter readers sent us a question about prayer. She wondered if praying does any good at all. Or is it just an exercise in frustration and futility?
Here’s our reader’s letter:
“Hi John and Spirit,
“Thank you for the years of support and truth.
“I would like to know about the purpose of prayer. I have prayed for people and thought that this would keep them protected and secure in the physical, and yet they still get hurt and leave the physical unexpectedly. I know we all leave eventually, but I thought we could pray to protect others from harsh experiences.
“Can you answer this question? What is the role of prayer? Does prayer have an impact on others?
