Prayer reflects dependence on God and His divine providence through requests for sustenance, forgiveness, protection, and all other supplications. Psalm 107 reflects the depth of God’s work in the lives of believers. The message found in Ephesians 1:3-12 also memorializes the role of humanity in the predestined plan of God. E.M. Bounds wrote that, “[p]rayer is asking God for something, and for something which He has promised. Prayer is using divinely appointed means for obtaining what we need and for accomplishing what God proposes to do on earth.
