On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, 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?
- I was watching the film The Genesis Code, which tried to harmonize evolution and the creation account in Genesis. Was there death before Adam and Eve were created, and was Eve created after day seven?
- Can you clarify your comments about the Tribulation and Jesus’ words in this regard? Do you think the events in the book of Revelation are going to happen in the future or not?
