What are you Praying for?

God answered one of my most sacred prayers this past week blessing me in such a way I can hardly find words to describe it. The Lord allowed to meet a most wonderful, beautiful godly woman.

I spent my entire adult life in search of “Mrs. Right” and just as I had resolved myself to the single life, God sent my dream girl. He served her up on a silver platter when I least expected it, her silky blonde hair flowing in the wind, her heart on her sleeve. Faith flowing from her lips, her magnificence pouring from her soul.

My only question would be why did he wait so long to bring this woman into my life? I prayed for her and longed for such passion in my life for so long. I suppose all that truly matters is that he did in deed answered my prayers.

What are you praying for? And most importantly, are you praying right? There are many ways you can ask God to take action in your life, but even more ways to pray in vain.

Don’t ask God to take away a bad habit. It’s not for Him to take away, but for you to give it up. Ask God to give you strength that will allow you to overcome challenges in your life. Ask God to inspire you to seek Him by reading scripture at least once every day.

Don’t ask God to make a handicapped child whole. You should know his spirit is whole, his body is only temporary. Pray for strength, you will need it to inspire children to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior which in turn, will save their souls from eternal damnation.

Don’t ask God to grant you patience. Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn’t granted, it is learned. Instead ask God to guide your footsteps so that you may resist temptation hidden in the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life

Don’t ask God to give you happiness. The Lord gives us blessings and opportunities; Happiness is up to us. If you can’t find happiness and joy in the Lord, you need to examine your relationship with Jesus Christ.

Don’t ask God to make your spirit grow. You must grow on your own! But know that the Lord will prune you to make you fruitful.

Don’t ask God for all things that you might enjoy life. He gave you life, so that you may enjoy all things.

Don’t know how to pray? Listen to Jesus…

And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Amen!” (Luke 11:1-4)

We invite you to call on this ministry for prayer and help with issues you are experiencing in your life. Never ignore the power of prayer and fellowship in Christ. Small groups, bible study fellowship and ministry opportunities are powerful resources that will inundate you with prayer.

May God Bless you and answer your prayers.

Let’s pray.

Father God;
We thank you for all that surrounds us and for your love.
We ask you to please answer our prayers
And guide us to enjoy the fruit of your holy grace.

Lord we pray you will inspire us to have a relationship with you
And that you will continue to bless our lives
And the lives of our friends, our families and those who seek you.

God we know you are listening and ready to provide for us
And so we thank you for your all mighty power,
For your love and for sending your only son to die on a cross
Paying the ultimate price so that we may all live.

Lord please guide our footsteps so that we may become more like you
Lead us to live Godly lives and keep praying in your name
For the things we need in this life and the next.

Thank you all mighty God for all that you’ve given us!

Praise God,
Amen!
