It Seems Your Prayers are Unanswered....
When you pray, you are probably hoping for a positive and immediate
response. It can be frustrating to experience times when you
are in need of divine intervention, and no matter what you do,
the answers seem slow in coming or woefully absent altogether.
Sometimes, you have to make even your frustration into a prayer!
live within the bounds of earth’s time and want
an answer from heaven that is on your timetable, it’s important
to remember that God is outside of time. God dwells in timelessness.
As one friend of mine says, “God’s clock has no hands.” Even
when it doesn’t feel like anything at all is happening, God
is hearing and answering. And you might be surprised to find
that what you are seeking comes not when you want it, but just
at the moment that you need it.
you are weary of waiting for answers, sit quietly in God’s presence for a few minutes. Focus on your breath.
As you breathe in, breathe in God’s love and care. As you
breathe out, breathe out your frustration. Even a few moments
of this will calm your soul.
for Reflection: “It will come to pass
that before they call, I will answer, and while they are yet speaking,
I will hear.” (Isaiah 65:24)
