I believe in the power of prayer. I believe all of the verses that promise my prayers are heard, are Powerful and effective. But often when I am praying the”BIG”prayers, I wonder where I have gone wrong.
I have to stop every now and then to avoid a full blown pity party. God has blessed me so much. He does answer my prayers. And I often feel His presence with.me. On those occasions when I am in His will, I even hear His voice.
But over the years I have prayed a number of really BIG prayers, prayers for healing and church growth. In fact right now I am constantly bombarding heaven, coming boldly before the King on behalf of my mother-in-law. I watch expectantly for these prayers to be answered. Even leaving room for God to answer In whatever way He thinks best. I am just praying that she will have an abundant life.But I just don’t see it happening.
So my only conclusion is that my prayer must somehow be lacking. obviously God is not lacking. He has not changed. He ls still omnipotent. I am firmly convinced He always does what is best for the Kingdom. In fact I am positive that right now He is doing just that. I only wish I could get my prayer more in line with His will.
