Looking again at 1 Thessalonians 5:12-28, Tony Smith answers six questions about prayer, our personal communication with God. Firstly 'What is prayer?', dealing with what our role in prayer is and God's role too: our relationship. Secondly 'What does God want us to pray?' shows us that we do not pray to inform God but to show our dependency on Him. Thirdly 'Is prayer effective?', in which Tony gives examples of powerful prayers and talks about prayers from Christians and those who are not Christians. Fourthly Tony answers 'What is praying in Jesus' name?' and what it means to say "in Jesus' name" at the end of a prayer. Fifthly 'Should we pray to Jesus and the Holy Spirit?', in which Tony answers whether it is Biblical to pray to a member of the Trinity other than the Father. Finally, Tony answers 'What is the Holy Spirit's role in our praying?', showing His energising power.
