A few weeks ago, I shared a post called Healing Faith. I have been praying for your requests as you have, and God has already answered. Amen!
Recently, my dear friend Lisa and I were texting. Her text asked me how things were going, and I texted back a prayer request. Her simple response was
"praying with expectation..."
I love that response. She prayed with the assurance that our prayers are not merely words floating like gossamer clouds through the atmosphere. They are known by our God even before we voice them. If He instructs us to pray, we can expect that He will hear and answer.
Tonight in doing some research for my book, I came across some great quotes about prayer that I want to share with you. Enjoy!
The value of consistent prayer is not that He will hear us, but that we will hear Him. ~William McGill
We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties. ~Oswald Chambers
What we usually pray to God is not that His will be done, but that He approve ours. ~Helga Bergold Gross
We must move from asking God to take care of the things that are breaking our hearts, to praying about the things that are breaking His heart. ~Margaret Gibb
Before we can pray, "Lord, Thy Kingdom come," we must be willing to pray, "My Kingdom go." ~Alan Redpath
Prayer is exhaling the spirit of man and inhaling the spirit of God. ~Edwin Keith
Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden. ~Corrie ten Boom
Prayer is not merely an occasional impulse to which we respond when we are in trouble: prayer is a life attitude. ~Walter A. Mueller
Prayer may not change things for you, but it for sure changes you for things. ~Samuel M. Shoemaker
Call on God, but row away from the rocks. ~Indian Proverb
Did one speak to you?
In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning, I lay my request before You and wait in expectation. Psalm 5:3
