What action would you take when the prayer you prayed for a long time was answered? A longing that required daily prayer and attention of ones mind. What would your first words be? Who would you call with such a message of relief or excitement? Are you preparing for the day when you’re prayer is answered? Are you still waiting in anticipation for that special moment?
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise. He answers the call of the diligent. He offers himself as a Father to his son. He loves those who love him and is willing to present you his gifts.
The Day It Was Answered I was not prepared for the enormity of my request. I was not ready for the gift presented. I was unaware of the following gifts that would follow. I was unable to some degree to know. The idea that we always know what is best is not true. Sometimes we think one way and cannot see another.
Your most precious prayer and your most great idea is not always the best and yet we pray with vigor and might for prayers we know in our mind are the most efficient, but are they? I challenge you today to ask the Lord of heaven to provide you his prayer to pray and pray in the Spirit as he already knows what you have need of before you ask.
The Day It Was Answered may be taken one of two ways. The first is that God answers the prayer of saving your sick loved one. God answers the request for a mate. God answers the prayer for the prophetic anointing and the ability to hear his voice. Oh what a prayer answered and one that comes with a great manner of responsibility. The second God answers a persistent prayer like the people in Samuel’s day and they get their request for a king named Saul who enslaves them and rules them under his thumb.
The Day It Was Answered is a reminder to pray with wisdom and carefulness and not just utter anything before God. Consider carefully your request as you are calling upon a great King. He is our Father and he loves us and bears long with us, but he is also a Superior being one that should be recognized as such and honored with careful requests.
