Is there really a God who answers prayer? Why are so many prayers unanswered? Henry was crushed by a huge bulldozer one day last autumn. Seven ribs were broken. His lungs were seriously damaged. His pelvic bone and hip were smashed. Doctors who examined him gave up hope the boy would live. "It would take a miracle," the medical professionals declared. But Henry's mother was a woman who really believed in prayer. She prayed and asked others to do so as well. Today, Henry has left that hospital bed, gone home, is able to walk, and is well on the road to recovery. Was Henry's recovery due to answered prayer? Or was it coincidence? Henry's mother is convinced she knows the answer. But a skeptic might ask, "What about all the thousands of prayers that are not answered?" There are two sides to the prayer question. There are millions of people who pray regularly to a Supreme Being, but who admit their prayers are not answered directly. They pray for the inner comfort it seems to give them.
