Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the One who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference. Max Lucado.
As we MARCH FORWARD into a new month, be reminded this April that …
God’s solution is a prayer away! You might be a person who’s been praying and believing God to touch someone’s life you care about, you might be praying for open doors or for clarity in your situation….know prayer lets God do what He does best. He takes the common and makes it spectacular. Keep praying and you’ll see what He can do.
If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him-Matthew 7:11
One of the things I really love about God is that He is really good at giving us good gifts when we ask Him. He knows how to get us where He wants us to go. But here’s the catch, the right place often seems like the wrong place, and the right time often seems like the wrong time. Be encouraged with the truth that God wants you to get where He wants you to go more than you want to get where He wants you to go.
You might be saying you’ve prayed many times but nothing happened, sometimes what we perceive as unanswered prayers are often the greatest answers. God is far too wise and loves us far too much to give us everything we ask for. Someday we’ll thank Him for the prayers He didn’t answer as much or more than the ones He did.
Be encouraged and pray knowing God has a surprise coming your way. I will finish this blog by a quote from Mark Batterson,
“Prayer adds an element of surprise to your life that is more fun than a surprise party or surprise gift or surprise romance. In fact, prayer turns life into a party, into a gift, into a romance.”
