How does prayer work?

Question:

“If I understand you right, God does not interact with this world and has the world in auto-pilot (cause and effect). Then how does prayer work? Are you actually making contact with God or Jesus? What are your thoughts on prayer?” -Steven

Answer:

Your understanding of cause and effect is correct.

Since God lives inside every person and Jesus is right next to Him, and therefore is inside every person also, prayer is our internal communication ability to either God or Jesus.

Do not confuse the auto-pilot system (as you put it) with the idea that God abandoned His creation. Therefore, God can interact with us, but does not unless it’s absolutely necessary. You pray and they hear, but the Bible teaches you: before you even decide to pray, your Father knows what you need.

Therefore, since God knows everything, the auto-pilot is prepared for your prayers before you pray!
