Do you believe prayer actually changes things?

It always saddens me when I encounter a Christian who has ceased to believe in the power of prayer. Sadly, it is often someone who holds to a distorted and coldly deterministic form of Calvinism. These are the individuals who think God can be explained by a logical syllogism, and in an effort to keep God in control of everything they ignore the very teachings of the Son of God (who, by the way, commanded us to pray). Listen as Piper talks about the amazing power of a Christian in prayer.
