Prayer Tip: Pray, Expecting an Answer!

Do you ever feel like ‘what’s the use?’ in certain areas of life – politics and the fickle majority, cancer, certain relationships, weight loss, dealing with depression, damaging habits and addictions, ….?

The song writer put it, “Sometimes the sky looks dark with not a ray of light, we’re tossed and driven on, no human help in sight; but there is one in heaven, who knows our deepest care, let Jesus solve your problem – just go to Him in prayer.”

God Himself says, “Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”  Jeremiah 33:3

Our experience confirms us in the belief that Jehovah the living God really does aid those who call upon him, and therefore we pray and mean to pray, not because we are so fascinated by prayer that for its own sake we would continue in it if it proved to be mere folly and superstition, as vain philosophers assert; but because we really, indeed, and of a truth, find it to be a practical and effectual means of obtaining help from God in the hour of need. There can be no reason for praying if there be no expectation of the Lord’s answering. ” Charles H. Spurgeon

Today is ‘super Tuesday’ of an election year. Arrogance and foolishness have been the marks of many in current leadership – a disdain for God and the faith of our founding fathers.  We would expect that from unbelievers. Let’s focus prayer during these troubling times on the church – those professing to know God and yet many of whom look just like the world when making decisions and living life.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (ESV if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

PRAY!  God is GOD!  Nothing is too difficult for Him.
