Do You Believe in Prayer?

The early church spent a lot of time in prayer, and this appears to be one reason for their success in spreading the gospel.  Do we believe in prayer?  Really and truly?  How much time a day do we spend in fervent, serious prayer?  Do we expect God to act in response?  The prayers of the church helped rescue Peter from prison, but even they were surprised when he appeared at the gate of the house.  What is it that causes us not to expect God to answer our prayers in a powerful way?
