Do you ever feel like your prayers for a miracle have gone unanswered? If this is the case, please let me remind you that God does answer prayers in his perfect time! God hears your prayers and at times what we think is unanswered prayer is actually God redirecting that prayer to something better. Imagine what would happen if every prayer was answered when we asked? James 4:3 “You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.” Look back and reflect at how many times you thanked God for not answering a prayer or two. Never doubt that God loves you and wants the best for you. At times what we think we need and want is not what is best in God’s plan for us. When this happens prayer can seem to be unanswered and maybe even stop believing in prayer for that occasion. Do not let the enemy influence you to think that unanswered prayer is the end of Gods plan for you and that he wins! God always wins and intervenes for all his children, His say is final. All prayer is answered in God’s way and perfect time when they are in line with His will. 1 John 5:14-15 says “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.”
I reflect back to the times in my own life when I thought God was being unfair about unanswered prayers and realized later that God knew what he was doing, and I did not. In fact, I was an idiot questioning why God did not answer as quickly as I wanted! We humans frequently do so in the natural and forget we serve a God who knows beginning from end. God’s ways are not like human ways, and for that I am so grateful! I made peace with God a long time ago and He quickly forgave me as I asked for forgiveness; yes, he does that! These days I know better than to question anything God does for me and those I pray for. I want to share some good news with you that God is with and for you, and that He has the best intention for you. He does answer your prayers when they are in line with his good will for you! Remind yourself that when you need a true miracle, He will answer! Isaiah 65:24 “Before they call I will answer; while they are speaking I will hear.” As always, stay blessed and in His favor!
Prayer for believing in prayer by Christina Grace
Dear Heavenly Father God,
I want to thank you for redirecting my thoughts and covering my mind to do your will. I ask your will over my life, and those of my loved ones. Help me to forgive others who have not had the best interest for me just as you forgive me first. Thank you that you are true to your word and quickly bend your ear to hear my prayer and deliver my sincere prayer in line with your word. Thank you for abundant health, finance, and relationships and for making me the head and not the tail, above and not beneath, blessed coming in and blessed going out. Thank you that you know what is best for me and my loved ones and that you reveal those things to me so that I pray the right things in line with your word and will. I thank you that you show me favor and remind me daily how much you love and care for me, and that I am secure in your love for me. Thank you that no weapon formed against me or my loved ones shall prosper in anyway. Lead out in all that I think, say, and do in Jesus name I pray. Amen!
