The question put into the mouth of the unbeliever by Job is perfectly legitimate and reverent if properly asked: ‘What profit should we have if we pray unto Him?” I was somewhat appalled—and that really suggested this chapter—by receiving from a prominent Christian man a letter in which he confesses that he has given up praying. He went so far as to say that God had utterly failed him at the mercy-seat. The letter was signed by the writer’s name, and he cast himself on me in sympathy, asking me to approach God in his behalf. It set me anew inquiring: “What profit shall we have if we pray unto Him?” and, “What is the cause of unanswered prayer?” This question I pray that I may in some measure answer, purely on the lines of Bible teaching.
