    Does anyone come from a life that hadn't been quite as strong in regards to serving God, but has now become more serving and has a prayer life. What about changes? Do you see prayer make a difference in your life with positive changes.

    Absolutely, there's no such thing as an "oatmeal christian," done in 5 minutes; it takes a lifetime, and even then, the only gift received is undeserved kindness.

    Yes I know. Just curious as to when prayers are answered.

    When the model prayer (Lord's Prayer) is followed, answers come immediately. How to use the model prayer can be found in Matthew Chapter 6, all verses.

    All other prayers and answers fall under Romans 8: 26. Answers to prayers are personal and should never to be used in the fashion of showy display.

    You are very welcome (yvw) ... Yes I do, very often, it's the only one I use, as well; unless I'm confronted with a situation that Romans 8: 26 identifies.
