Question: I am a young lady and a single mother. I was into prostitution at the time I got pregnant. The father of my child denied responsibility and I have lived dependent on my parents. Thanks to the almighty God for changing my life. I received Christ while I was still pregnant. I had gone to a public health clinic. They had run some tests on me. When I went back for the results, I almost collapsed and died.

Question: I have always had difficulty with a spiritual gift. The gift of tongues. In my reading I have come across the groaning of the Spirit, and Paul saying he speaks in tongues often.
Question: My question has to do with prayer. I believe that God knows all and that He knows what our lives will be like before we live them. If this is the case, where does prayer come in? Does it really change God’s mind when we pray or is it just to bring us closer to Him? Also, when I give Him something in prayer (such as the salvation of a loved one) sometimes I feel like I don’t trust God enough if I pray for it again and again. I know we are to pray without ceasing, but what about when we’re told to give our troubles to Him and then not take them back? Is repetitive prayer against His will?

Question: I once read in the New Testament, I think, that too much prayer is sinful, could you please tell the book it’s in. Too much, meaning praying over and over for the same thing.
Answer: Thank you for your question and the passage of Scripture you were trying to remember, I think, is Matthew 6:7. “And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.”
