Does Prayer Matter? – Philip Yancey

In the sixth chapter of his book on prayer, Philip Yancey writes this answer to the question, “Does prayer matter?”

“After surveying Jesus’ practice of prayer, I realize that his example does answer one important question about prayer:  Does it matter?  When doubts creep in and I wonder whether prayer is a sanctified form of talking to myself, I remind myself that the Son of God, who had spoken worlds into being and sustains all that exists, felt a compelling need to pray.  He prayed as if it made a difference, as if the time he devoted to prayer mattered every bit as much as the time he devoted to caring for people.”
