How many times have you said you would pray for someone and then forgot to? Shame on you! And some of us pray long, fancy, Pharisee-like prayers which probably make Christ nauseous, but certainly impress those around us!
God does answer prayers! He answers with a Yes, No, Not Now. Psalm 37:4 states “Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Yet we treat Him like he’s a vending machine with pitifully selfish prayers – “please Lord, get me that parking space up front” or “please let me win the lottery.”
God isn’t a genie in a bottle that you pull out when you want Him. The Hebrew word Delight means “soft and pliable.” Allow God to shape and mold you into the person you were meant to be, and He will give you the desires of your heart. If you do this, the desires of your heart will change. Get an up front relationship with God, and you won’t be as concerned about that parking space up front.
Challenge to You: Pray, and write the prayers in a journal; go back every 2-3 months and see what was answered. Dare you!
