Have you ever looked back at something you prayed for and how it was answered? There have been moments in my life that I have been called to pray. The words even appear to be hitting the ears of God and falling to the ground. Even though I know in my heart that this is not true it often feels that way. Tonight God reminded me of a prayer request that I sought Him for. I was unaware of the depth of the answer needed and the events required to have Him answer. I honestly felt the answer would never come. There were times that the battle pursued in prayer was intense and I felt my depravity in the waiting. I never fully understand the battle fought or what was taking place when my words rose to heaven. To be honest the more I prayed the worse things appeared to become… To the point I would almost give up praying. I will never fully understand prayer or what often happens in the moments divine words leave my lips. All I know is that scripture tells us that what we battle is spiritual. I look forward to the day when I get to see the visual of what takes place as the words leave my mouth. As I grow I trust more in the obedience of praying when God calls me to. Praying in faith that the answers will come one day and Heaven is moved at the moment I speak. We are unaware at the moment our mouth opens the journey that God will have us be apart of. One thing I do know is that prayer is powerful and life begins to change. At times it appears to get worse before it gets better. We are never fully aware of where things are in the process leading to our answer. We should be sensitive to how God moves our heart and patient in the process, one day the healing will come, the long awaited husband will arrive, restoration will happen, our hearts will be mended or whatever else you cry out for will be answered. I encourage you embrace the process, cling so tightly to the Lord and await His answer.
