Prayer: Prayer Changes People's Wills

...[D]on't neglect the amazing influence you have in the world for good through prayer. By prayer God calls us to join him in shaping history. By prayer we are to influence the wills of presidents and kings and senators and governors and mayors (1 Timothy 2:1-2). By prayer we are to influence the wills of professors and writers and entertainers and editors and pastors and elders and missionaries. By prayer we are to influence the wills of our friends and our enemies. We are to influence the wills of our children by prayer, and our husbands and wives and mothers and fathers and sisters and brothers and neighbors and colleagues and fellow students.

The amount of transforming good you can do by prayer is incalculable. Don't neglect this great work God has put into your hands. ....[L]et's use both our instruments to win people over to Christ. Let's work to change people's minds with truth and people's wills with prayer.

---John Piper, from Prayer Changes People's Wills.
