A Thought for Today: “Pray Like You Expect Your Prayer to be Answered”
A farming community was in the midst of a drought.
A local preacher decided to hold a prayer meeting to ask the Lord God for His refreshing showers.
As the people came together, the preacher chastised them. Where are your umbrellas he asked?
Please read the following verses.
22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.
23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
The Lord God tells us to pray as if we believe our prayer will be answered.
May we pray boldly for the Lord’s will to be done in our lives.
Pray that prayer and expect the Lord God will hear and act on our prayers.
