Candace Cameron Bure and Tara-Leigh Cobble on Prayer: ‘God’s Always There for Us’

By Movieguide® Staff

Candace Cameron Bure and Tara-Leigh Cobble recently discussed prayer on the latest episode of ‘Candace Cameron Bure: The Podcast.’

The actress and music artist began their conversation about prayer with the scriptures encouraging Christians that God hears our prayers.

“When we pray to God, whether it’s something really casual.. or it’s an actual desperate need of prayer… God’s always there for us,” Bure said. “He’s always listening and he’s always receiving.”

“He’s not gonna say, ‘No, no, I don’t have time for you today. I’m not gonna listen to this one today. I gotta go to work, I’ve got other things on the agenda today maybe, I’ll get to you tomorrow,’” she explained.

Cobble pointed to Romans 8:28, which reads: “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,[a] for those who are called according to his purpose.”

“One of the things that it tells Christians is it says God is working everything together for good. Not that the things are at work to be good, but that God is working in everything, the good, the bad and the ugly—in all circumstances—to do good to his kids,” Cobble added. “If God is at work in everything then that means he’s at work even in where I park, because every little thing is something.”

“Nothing is removed from him and God has this incredible mind that is never overloaded,” she continued. “He’s never exhausted. He doesn’t tap out. He doesn’t need to nap and He’s always active but never busy.”

Bure and Cobble also jumped into some more complex theological doctrine, like how prayer is made possible by the Trinity.

“Scripture repeatedly says that he tells us to keep coming to Him, to keep asking Him, to keep talking to Him, to talk to him about everything,” Cobble said. “Prayer is one of the places that we see all three persons of the Trinity at work.”

Bure noted that prayer is simply a conversation, and our conversations with God often mirror the conversations parents have with their children.

“God just wants communication,” Bure said. “I think of being a parent and my one-year-old hasn’t even formed words yet, can’t form sentences, nothing. God already knows everything we’re thinking before we speak it, He knows what’s in our heart… at the end of the day it’s just a conversation.”

“Let me encourage you, just go pray,” Bure concluded. “Go talk to God, because it’s just amazing to see the work.”
