Is there something that you really, really want? No, not a toy or a new game! Something like a sick relative to be healed? Or a friend to accept Jesus as their Savior? Or maybe to see Mommy or Daddy doing better? God knows that we are small and unable to make these things happen on our own. That is why he gave us the power of prayer. The Bible tells us that:
“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Matthew 21:22
That doesn’t always mean that if we believe God will answer our prayer just how we want. It means that if we have faith in how strong and mighty He is, we will see Him answering our prayers in His own way. Sometimes he uses doctors to help answer prayers. Sometimes he uses us! And sometimes the answers to our prayers is, “No,” or “Not now.” When God answers with a, “No” or, “Later on” it can really hurt our hearts. But if we believe, as scripture says, that God is mighty and strong enough to handle the prayer request, they will be answered!
Today, spend some time praying. Can you believe in faith that God will answer your prayers? What is your biggest prayer request right now?
