Prayer is answered–a sermon

Prayer Is Answered

Matthew 21:22

Central Theme:  A good reason to pray is because God answers prayer.

Introduction–Bring a watch that does not work.  Throw it away.  Bring a straw with a hole in it.  Throw it away.  I don‘t use things that don‘t work.  I am so glad that prayer always works for people who believe in Jesus.
