Advent and the power of prayer

Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.” (Luke 11:1, CEB)

George MacDonald wrote this about prayer:

And why should the good of anyone depend on the prayer of another? I can only answer with the return question, “Why should my prayers be powerless to help another?”

The Lord taught us to pray, “Your kingdom come, your will be done.”

Lord, bring me into living, loving prayer.
