Have you ever written a letter to God? I'm not sure that it really makes sense to do something like this...God already knows our hearts and He knows the things that weigh heavy upon us.
During my fast, I really feel as if this is exactly what I've been doing....Writing to God each day....trying to understand the things that I do not understand....Trying to understand why some prayers are not answered!
Is God pleased with the Faith that I claim to have? Am I really living with the Hope that I talk about?
What I have discovered about myself, is that I am just like many other people. I feel tempted from time to time to throw my hands in the air and give a big shout ...."I Quit."
But what would I be quitting? If I quit praying, then I am denying myself the opportunity to believe that God even hears me. If I quit reading the bible, then I am the one that goes unfed... It is hard to understand that the Source of our strength and our Provider in all things is already with us. But....When a situation seems hopeless, it is difficult to not grow weary and lose strength.
I feel as if I am missing something here? Perhaps I have not understood what exactly it is that I am suppose to pray. Is there a certain word I have to say or is there a specific request that I have to ask in order for this need to be met? If the need was for ME, it might be a little easier to understand , but when you are diligently praying for someone else, and there seems to be NO answers, it becomes a little harder to comprehend. It's not as if I am selfishly asking for something.....
I have repeatedly gone before God and ask His favor upon a loved one who is not saved, yet this prayer remains unanswered. I do know that fasting and praying is a very powerful spiritual combination and I also know that PRAYER IS THE BATTLE.......I AM DETERMINED TO SEE AND CLAIM THE VICTORY IN THE LIFE OF THIS LOVED ONE.........SO I WILL PRAY EVER CHANCE I GET!
We are told in Scripture to keep trusting and believing in all of our trials even when we don’t see the answer.
Daniel the prophet fasted for the fulfillment of God's promises, and received mighty revelations from God.
So, I suppose my question is: Am I giving God the diligence to assist Him in the answers that I long for?
God wants us to rely on His love.....He wants us to Trust Him.....He wants us to believe and have Faith.
They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
TEACH ME LORD .....TEACH ME LORD TO WAIT!
I'm praying for a soul to be saved!
