On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (07/18/19), Hank addresses the question: why pray if God already knows what we need? We must remember that supplication is not the sole sum of our prayers. Prayer should be a means of pursuing a dynamic relationship with the Lover of our souls. God ordains not only the ends but also the means, and while our heavenly Father knows what we need before we ask, our supplications are an indication of our dependence upon Him and that alone should be reason enough to pray without ceasing.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- I heard Elaine Pagels say Revelation was not a book of end-time prophecy and was not written by the Apostle John; can you comment on this?
- How is it that Jesus’ death on the cross pays for all sins past, present, and future? Is there a logical, philosophical way of understanding this?
- I have been hearing about the rebuilding of the temple; do you know anything about this?
