Pray The Forgotten Prayer

PRAYER-PIN

As you approach the last few weeks of the year, you may find yourself tempted to give up on a few hopes. You may be tempted to believe that God has already done what he will do in 2014…and that you might as well stop praying for anything new. You may be tempted to, in the nicest way possible, “fire” God from his position in your life, and consider revisiting the topic of rehire later. And when it comes to the faithless side of logic, you may be tempted to give in.

I know I have. Despite the MANY blessings and victories he’s brought me this 2014, there’s a few things my head & heart still longs to see this year.

So I took it all to God. And during a time of prayer and reflection, He brought me to this:

Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’ And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly (Luke 18:1-8)

And this:

“Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” (Matthew 7:7-11)

And this:

“Pray without ceasing,”  (1 Thes. 5:17.)

You see, despite our temptation to stop praying, we can’t. 2014 isn’t over and neither is God’s work in it. His giving of “good and perfect gifts” didn’t expire in November. No. His miracles are still suspended in that space between our earth and his heaven, with our prayers, our expression of faith, being the key to their release. Keep praying family. And not just those prayers we’re sure God can answer, but those prayers we’ve subconsciously convinced ourselves he can’t. Pray those forgotten prayers. And let God be the judge of his own power and provision. Not we, ourselves.

Here’s to a month of faithful prayers…and wonderful surprises in return!

In prayer & expectation with you,

~Peace

  1. I just started to cry when I heard you on Klove radio taknilg about your unborn son Jonah. I can’t believe the believing power you have and I do believe God is going to use this time to show His great power so everyone can see that He is a True God and Faithful and Loving, all at the same time. Yes, He does answer pray, especially the ones who truly believe in Him. I had an abortion when I was barely 18 and it cause me to never have childern. I love childern very much and every chance I get around kids I like to tell them about Jesus and how much He loves them. May God richly bless you for what you are doing beyond healing your beautiful son Jonah!!!!!!!!!! I can’t stop crying

    1. I’m sorry, that wasn’t me and this is not my story. I do pray though that you, and whomever you are referring to, are getting the support you need. Blessings <3
