Need Prayer?

A lot of time in my home is reserved and spent on intercessory prayer.  If you have a prayer request, please add a comment and rest assured, it will be prayed over for a period of time.

God listens to our prayers.  He answers our prayers – always.  Not always as we want, for God is not a vending machine.  He is the Sovereign LORD of the Universe and all that is contained therein.   Besides which God is God.  We are not.  But prayer matters, it is a privilege He allows us to partake in.  Prayer changes things.  Most of all, it changes us.

We are told in scripture to make our requests known to God.  We are told to come before the throne of God boldly – because Jesus Christ has and is making intercession for us.  We are told that God is faithful, just, unchanging, all-powerful, and all-knowing, loving, compassionate, and good.  To name just a few of His attributes.  God knows what is best for us, so when we ask, we are to ask within His will.  His sovereignty that knows no time limitation, no restrictions in knowledge.  We are to ask in the name of Jesus.

Answers to our prayers include at least the following:

  • Yes.  I wondered when you would ask.
  • YES, of course.   I love you.
  • Yes.
  • OK, here you go.
  • OK, wait for my timing
  • Not yet.
  • Not at all
  • Not the way you plan, but the way I plan
  • There is a better way
  • Let me know when you realize who is in charge
  • Let me know when you know to whom you belong
  • No.  Just no.  It is not what is best for you.

So if you want prayer for a specific need, let me know.  I would consider it an honor.
