Theology of Prayer: Scriptural Support (Part 11: Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs)

Proverbs 11:26 describes how people curse hoarders but pray blessings upon those who are willing to sell. Here prayer is about blessing others in contradistinction to cursing. Such kind of prayer is a form of request.

Proverbs 15:8 describes how the prayers of the righteous please God.

Proverbs 15:29 describes how God hears the prayers of the righteous. The righteous can rest assured that the Lord hears their prayers.

Proverbs 28:9 describes how prayers are detestable when the person doing the praying does not listen to God’s instruction.

Proverbs sees a clear connection between the righteousness of the individual who prays and the way God views and receives the prayers.

Finally, Proverbs 31:2 describes the son being the answer to prayer.
