Do you think that your prayer requests are not answered fast enough? Or that God ignores your prayer requests? Do you suppose that God is withholding any good from you because you’re not perfect? By now (if you haven’t skipped any chapters of this book) you know that this isn’t true. However, worry is easily triggered when our prayers are not answered. They are triggered by old messages from which we have not yet been completely healed.

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
(Psalm 84:11 NIV)

Father God is your Doting Daddy. You are favored. There is nothing he wouldn’t do for you; this includes sending his Son Jesus to Earth to suffer and die for your sins so that you won’t have to do it. If he did that for you, of course he’ll do anything else that will help you spend eternity with him in Heaven. Whatever you ask, if it’s within his kingdom, he will do it for you. It’s never a matter of, “Will You, Father?” It’s always a matter of trusting him for the “when” and “how”.

 


Day 18 on the journey includes:

  • Prayer is like a love letter

Your comment that Jesus doesn’t wait for people to prove their holiness before giving them a miracle made me re-visit your previous comments about someone who received Eucharist while still a catechumen and how they were chastised and left the church. That has not sat well with me. Sometimes I think our church rules are still too legalistic and that we turn people away from coming to Jesus when they are ready just because we have a “ formula” for when they are worthy…… just something that bothers me.
