I think we can all agree that this year has been one of a kind.
As I look back at the intense moments (and there were lots of those),
the times when I didn’t know how I would get through the week and season,
the powerlessness I felt, and so many other negative things, I am blown away
by the faithfulness of the Lord.
As I page through my diary it is littered with ticks.
They represent answered prayers.
As a situation came up I would bring it to Him and then write it down.
When He answered my prayer I would mark it.
Ninety percent of the prayers I wrote down He answered.
The remaining ten percent are long term prayers that I am still waiting on Him for.
So at the end of the day, all the prayers I made to Him when I was in trouble and
needed help urgently, He answered!
And that encourages me to keep praying because He does answer prayer.
He hears us when we call and He answers.
You may be in a tough spot at the moment but I want to remind you of the power of prayer.
It is a weapon we have been given. The word says He delights in our prayers so keep praying.
Don’t stop ever. I have to admit there are times I doubt if God has heard my prayers,
times I think God has deliberately chosen to ignore me but in His mercy and grace
He shows me the truth. He always hears us. He cares about everything we are going through
and that is why we can be confident when we pray.
As I close I want to share a video I watched that encouraged me to keep praying because the
God we serve is a God who answers prayer.
Bless you friends
