Prayer Requires Risk

If we don’t ask, we will never know. If we aren’t willing to risk our reputation we’ll never establish God’s reputation.

The impossible prayers reveal our faith and allows God to reveal His glory through us. There will be times when you will have to do whatever it takes. Letting Go of your pride and ego, come to the altar in humility and dire dependence on God. You’ll need to do something crazy, something risky, and something different.

God doesn’t need us to pray, he wants us to seek Him daily. God doesn’t answer prayers just to give us what we want; He will answer prayers to bring Him honor. God will not answer every single prayer, but He calls us to bring our prayer request to Him. He has the final say.

Prayer places the responsibility in God’s sovereign hands. We’re afraid that God won’t answer our prayers or get frustrated that He isn’t answering our prayers. We never know if the answer will be Yes, No, or Not Yet. But the answer isn’t up to us. God knows what we need and when we need it. We only need to trust God. It is risky business to trust God for the outcome, but His ways are everlasting. This world is not certain nor is it stable. We have God who is and has always been a firm foundation. We could use stability in a time of uncertainty.

Mornings with your favorite cup and meditate on God’s Word.

      1. Understood. At the heart of Jesus words, is a suggestion to do not giving up going to God in prayer. Its connected to God being good, and if we know how to give good gifts to our kids, how much more does God gift us. Also when it comes to prayer, and the way its described in the sermon on the mount, we must pray for the things that are Gods will not ours. Asking, seeking and knocking…about for example that we would take seriously the beatitudes for example, thats clearly the will of Christ and less, God i want lots of money(which people actually pray for). Now asking for money in itself is not a bad thing but if we ignore the words of Christ and never pray about what he teaches and ask for help in obeying, which is his will, then yes we misinterpret. I hope that wasnt to much Tiff. Make sense at all?
