Day 11: Answered Prayer


What if nothing is going your way

&

What if you have been PRAYING for the same thing

&

nothing still appears not to be going your way?

Do you throw the towel in?

Do you get angry with

GOD

because HE appears to be doing nothing

but sitting down on HIS job?

Oh you are so close to quitting,

but then you hear the gentle whisper~

"PRAY without ceasing"(I Thessalonians 5:17)

&

"....continuing steadfastly in PRAYER..." (Romans 12:12).

So you PRAYER harder,

yet something is missing

as you are so unsettled

as you become anxious

because you wonder if

GOD is really listening

&

if HE really HEARS your PRAYERS.

But then you hear the gentle whisper~

"but in everything [every circumstance and situation]

by PRAYER and petition WITH THANKSGIVING

continue to make your [specific] requests known to GOD"*

Oh how two words stop you in your tracks~

"WITH THANKSGIVING".

Oh to be THANKFUL in the midst of an unthankful situation

that you are PRAYING for GOD to change.

THANKSGIVING~

"grateful language (to GOD, as an act of worship)"(Strongs).

"GRATEFUL language" to GOD!

And now you really stop

because

it no longer becomes about

"the what" you are

ceasing not to PRAY about

because

you are so

THANKFUL

that

GOD goes beyond HEARING because HE chooses to listen.

And then it happens~

"And the peace of GOD [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace]

which transcends all understanding, [that peace which]

stands guard over your hearts and

your minds in CHRIST JESUS [is yours]" (Philippians 4:6-7 AMP)

And you finally get it

because

HIS PEACE

is HIS answer to your PRAYER

because you never cease

PRAYING WITH THANKSGIVING

because you are ever so

"GRATEFUL" (listen to the song below)
