Do you ever take time to stop and reflect on the faithfulness of God, to meditate on how He has answered your prayers? You cannot separate God from His will, promises and time. The prayers of many years are never lost. They will come back to you a hundred-fold at God’s appointed time. Many have even come back to you but because you have forgotten the prayer you offered, the answer appears unseen.
Are you tempted to doubt God’s goodness towards you? Listen to Joshua who assured the Israelites that they had seen every one of God’s promises fulfilled (Joshua 23:15).
Are you questioning if God hears your prayer? Learn from Daniel who as soon as he began to pray, an answer was given (Daniel 9:23).
Are you conditioning God by expecting the answer to your prayer to come in a particular way? Ask Simeon and he will tell you that the answer to his prayer came in a way he never imagined (Luke 2:25-29).
Prayer is an acknowledgement that there is a superior realm that controls the physical and invisible world. God always answers the prayer of faith yet He doesn’t always answer in the letter. Although it may appear unseen, begin to thank God for a more glorious answer to your prayer than you could ever imagine.
