Have you ever heard someone make the comment "My prayer didn't get out of the roof" or something like that? What they're trying to say is their prayer was just words, it didn't move God's heart. Why do our prayers fall short?
Why are our prayers not answered?
Prayer is powerful. Prayer changes things. Did you know there are two steps to a prayer:
- speak the prayer aloud or silent
- believe God for the answer
John 3:16 says eternal life comes to those who what? Believe! I'm guilty of the "Agrippa-tude" (Acts 26:28) in my prayers, are you? I pray the words and like a telegraph insert the word "stop" when I'm finished. I don't believe God to come thru with the answer. I imagine God shaking his head in disbelief saying "Tammy, almost thou persuadeth me to answer your prayer if you believed."
Christianity isn't a fairy tale or make-believe, it's MUST-BELIEVE.
Leave me a comment with your thoughts on prayer and belief.
