The Privilege of Prayer

One of the greatest privileges that we have as believers is that we can pray to God and when we do, He answers.

When we reflect on prayer to God several things may cross our minds. One could be excitement about answers to our prayers, another could be thoughts of why some of our prayers weren’t answered. It could also be that we take the extreme position that God does not listen to or answer our prayers. This opinion may be due to past disappointments of not seeing the results we expected when we prayed about certain issues.

The truth of the matter is that God hears and answers our prayers as believers. Jeremiah 33:33 says, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know”. Isaiah 65:24 says, “Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear”.

Let’s spend time understanding how God answers our prayers and speaks to us. That might help us to see how He  answers our prayers and how He deals with us.

Have a great month ahead.
