While many people pray, some will still have that nagging doubt as to whether they are just talking to themselves?

Philip Yancey speaking to Mike Hill of BBC Tees about leaps of faith....

"The question of unanswered prayers bedevils me and its one I'm concerned about a lot. God could have set up the world in a different way so that every prayer had an immediate magical answer. It would be a different kind of world to the one we live in though. There's more mystery involved, more of God depending on us to do God's will rather than God intervening in a spectacular and miraculous way. All of us who take prayer seriously will eventually run into that wall of unanswered prayer".
