(Mark 11:24), Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
As I stated on yesterday, I am going to do a short series on Prayer. The Lord's desire is that those of you that are a little bit stuck or fall short when it comes to prayer; develop a prayer life to commune with Him.
The other day, I was going through something and it came to my mind, "I will just pray that the Lord will make sure that I am okay". Then before I even let that thought simmer in my mind, I said, "I will not pray that prayer because I know that the Lord will take care of me". You see sometimes in order for your situation to change, you have to change your heart. At a certain point in your life you should not be wondering whether or not the Lord is with you in your situation. Change your prayer to that of gratification and worship for what He is doing. Even though you may not see the change in your situation, you have to trust God. I know that it is sometimes very hard to do when you feel like the walls are closing in on you. Also, I want you to give this some thought. Even though you are asking the Lord for something to change your situation, you have to trust in Him without wavering. What may happen is that the Lord will take you in a whole different direction than the one that you wanted to travel.
You may also need to change your prayers to that of thanksgiving instead of whining and complaining about what you do not have. For example, your lights are shut off and you need to call the company and make some arrangement, you prayer should be: "Lord, I don't know what you are going to do, but I thank you for taking care of my situation. Lord, I don't know how you are going to help me put food on the table today, but I am praising you now for it. Lord, I don't know how you are going to fix my marriage, but I worship you today for it. That is how you pray to the Lord, without wavering. Sometimes your might not think that you are wavering but in the back of your mind you are still keeping what you are suppose to give to the Lord. You are still worried.
When I first moved from Las Vegas to Georgia, we did not know where we were going to stay. We prayed all the way here and we first settled in Norcross. No transportation, no knowledge of the city. We looked at several homes in Norcross but we ended up way across town. Close to schools and shopping within walking distance. And the Lord made sure we had good neighbors that helped us out with the use of their car. We had to trust the Lord all the way from Vegas to Georgia, believe and you shall have. The Lord promises to be the spring in your darkest valley and a stream of living water in your driest desert. HALLELUJAH! PRAISE GOD!
