Look, don't judge Christianity by the imperfect examples that we have seen in history. Judge it by Jesus Christ.
Paul points out that some say, 'I'm of Paul,' while others say, 'I'm of Apollos.' He asked, 'Isn't that carnal?' But what's the difference between saying that or saying, 'I'm a Baptist,' 'I'm a Presbyterian,' 'I'm a Methodist,' 'I'm a Catholic'?

We're all one.

For it is then when the Lord intervenes to do a work that we could not do for ourselves.

We should not take the blessings of God for granted. We should always be careful to give God praise and thanksgiving for the work that he does in our lives.
Prayer is not an agency by which my will is to be accomplished upon the earth. The purpose of prayer is to get God's will to be accomplished upon the earth, and so many times we ask and receive not because the motive behind our asking is really that of accomplishing my will rather than God's will.
Prayer does not change the purpose of God. But prayer does change the action of God.
Though prayer doesn't change God's mind or God's purposes, prayer does change something- It changes us.
