“Delayed Prayer” (Part 1)


Bishop' inspirational word”  Week 4 “Delayed Prayer”.png
Praise the Lord Beloved.
Happy New Week!!!

You know Beloved, scripture makes it clear that our heavenly Father hears and answers prayer.
Yet we all experience times when we pray for God to act right away and at times He doesn’t.
Our prayer is delayed.
 
This week (Monday-Wednesday) I will give you some reasons for the delayed prayer.

Beloved Mark 12:30 says:
30 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.

Beloved, one reason God delay’s our prayer is at times the Lord sees that our attention is misdirected. You see, our relationship with Him should have priority over any earthly matter. Yet our minds and prayers can become so fixed upon a need that our gaze shifts away from Him. The Father may delay His answer until we refocus on Him.

Another reason God delay’s our prayer is because the timing isn’t right for granting our request.
Perhaps certain events must happen first, or people’s thinking needs to be changed.

I will give you another reason tomorrow.

“To God Be the Glory!!!”
