You are Invited

Jesus said to His followers:

‘You may ask Me for anything in My Name, and I will do it.’  John 14:14

Today you are invited to consider how you pray.  Do you ask God to answer your prayers hoping that He has heard you?  Or do you ask expecting an answer?  Do you ask and move on to other things, putting your request on the shelf until you pray again?  Or do you move into your day watching for the answer?  Do you despair, suspecting He will never answer this prayer of yours for you have been asking for so long?  Or do you use the waiting time before the answer is clear to learn from the experience?  How do you pray?  Stop today and listen.  What is God saying to you about your prayers?  Give Him the chance, the time, to answer you, and only when He has, move on, taking His promise in this verse into your life.

May God bless you with His answer today.
