Prayers Answered By Our Time

Why are some prayers answered quickly and some take years?  One factor might be how open we are to accepting what the Lord tells us.

I know two people that have been praying for direction in their lives.  One person asked for four months with no response and decided to stay up all night praying with God's answer coming at 7 am.

Another person has been praying for a year with no response.  The Bible says we must be obedient, unselfish and faithful in prayer.

This means asking for our Lord Jesus to lead our lives and not us trying to direct Him.  A joyous meaningful life in God's will is only a sincere prayer away.

Second Biggest Miracle

When people turn away from their selfish, crazy, wicked ways and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord, it is the number one miracle.  The second biggest miracle is when Christians let go of their control and allow Christ's Spirit to change them into His servants of love.

This type of Christian must give holy unconditional love no matter what the other person does, even our enemies.  I've had many stressful experiences trying to be this loving Christian.

While I've been yelled at many times, the worst experience was sexual harassment.  When I was at a friend's house, their male friend followed me around and touched me inappropriately.

I prayed for him to be stopped, preferably with some pain.  Jesus told me to love him and pray for his salvation because he was going to hell.

Only with Jesus' help could I do this and the Lord gave me supernatural direction to stop the harassment much to the surprise of this man.  Being unconditionally loving isn't about a perfect life but supernatural help, which is only a prayer away.

God's Timing

Sometimes I get an immediate answer to my prayers and other times it takes awhile.  God's timing is based on spiritual necessity and immediacy.

In the morning this week, I asked the Lord what to wear and got answered.  Then I prayed about what to do at church, I was told to preach and the Pastor contacted me the next day to do that.

Sometimes I ask and forget about them until months or years later when my prayers are answered.  The Lord always hears our prayers but sometimes we ask for things that are spiritually bad for us.

Prayers that always get answered are the ones for spiritual growth because we are created to grow in holy love and wisdom for an eternal life with our Heavenly Father.  

Spiritual growth is only a prayer away!

God's Will

After writing miracle blogs for about a year now, I'm starting to notice a pattern.  I pray for help and the Lord answers me with supernatural experiences that not only directly help but build our relationship, too.

God loves us and wants to help but we don't include Him in our daily lives enough.  I can only keep focused on His holy things because of the supernatural help I get.

The following is what an average week looks like in answer to my prayers.  The Lord gave me money (in many different ways), fixed the shower head, filled my deodorant, caused missing stuff to appear (sometimes at another one's house), healed me from eating bad food and had someone give me pants to replace my wornout ones.

Not only were my basic needs met but extras, too.  The Lord healed my friend's brother of terminal cancer, gave me money to see relatives along with a harmonious visit and had me give some money away to others in need.

While we need to pray in His will for the spiritual benefit of all, there are lots of blessings our Heavenly Father wants to give us.  These supernatural gifts are only a prayer away!
