During my prayer time this morning....I found myself talking to God and trying to explain that the words just will not come from my mouth. I was struggling to find the right words to pray!
Have you ever had something that you have prayed about for so long.....and you NO longer know what to ask God for in regards to your specific prayer?
If it were me that I was praying for....I would be able to speak to God in detail for whatever it was that I needed prayer for. BUT....when you are praying for another person...it is very difficult to understand what exactly it is that is causing them to be in the valley that they are in.
The human side of me does not understand when a LONG time prayer sees No answers, No change. I have dissected this need into numerous different prayer request to God..... and I have trusted God to answer my prayers.
How could there possibly be anything else that I could ask God for on behalf of this person? Believe me......I feel as if I have covered everything that I could possibly cover. I just must not be asking God for the right thing.
So.....in my prayers this morning.....I was trying so hard to communicate with God and to try to come up with some other request that would change the life of the one I was praying for.
I was almost to the point of frustration.....when finally, I just said: "Lord, I am at the end of my ropes in knowing what to Pray. What is it that you need me to ask for? What words am I not saying?"
I then just shut my prayer off.
Later this afternoon.....thoughts of this same person came to my mind again. I tried to ignore the thoughts....but I had a heaviness upon me and I knew that I needed to come before God and try praying again. Maybe this time it would be different since I was on my knees and not behind the wheel of my car.
You know what? I didn't hear an audible voice from God telling me that He was going to answer a single one of my prayers....What I did hear, was God assuring me that HE has heard every single prayer (all 6,000) of them.
God also spoke to me that I need to Trust HIM. God's timing is not my timing!
When I don't have the words to speak....I need only to Pray His Will.
I may never see answers to my prayers....but I do know that God's Grace and His Mercy are everlasting.
