Truth – Part 2 – The Power Of Prayer
The Power of Truth
God pays attention to the prayers of those who are careful to only speak truth, as it says, “God is close to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth”.
Read the above second half of the above verse as the condition of the first: God will be close to all if they are careful with truth.
“True speech is established forever.” The words of someone who is careful with truth will always have an impact.
