Walkaway prayer? In a very real sense you and I are often ill-advised when it comes to our prayers of asking. “Dear Lord, please give me this or that.” God is okay with us asking for things, He expects us to ask Him for whatever we wish to ask Him for.
Think about it. The fact is that often He doesn’t give us what we ask for. What do you do when God is silent? Is yours a walkaway prayer, assuming God has said “No?” Or do you return in prayer to ask Him what it is that might be hindering Him from responding to your requests?
God’s Word tells us: “He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous” (Matthew 5:45b).
It’s God’s will to give you what you ask for. Prayer is, however, all about relationship building and not just asking. When our relationship with God is strained or missing, our prayers are empty. This is key to getting what we desire. Seek that relationship with God today; ask Him in prayer what you need to do to draw closer to Him. You may find that the drawing closer is the reward.
“God please help me. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know who to turn to. So I turn to You. Holy Spirit, please strengthen me. God, even though I don’t know all the answers, I know that You do. In the Bible, You promise to help us when we pray to You. So I pray confidently to You in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
