In episode 28 Jimmy and Joe eventually get around to talking about prayer, it's definition and relationship to the Scripture. Why pray if God doesn't change his mind? What makes prayer so critical to the Christian life? Is there a time to stop praying? How can we reboot our prayer life? Plus, an amazing email from the mailbag.
