Praying for the Same Things
God it's me again, in the exact same spot. I'm back here on my knees again; I feel it moving in, the paralyzing fear that all my prayers fall on deaf ears. I know You don't need reminding and You know every word before it's said. I'll put my trust in Your perfect timing and keep praying for the same things. Even after all these years, You still care enough to hear me out. You're faithful in the waiting, until my heart becomes Your heart and my ways become Your ways. That's why I pray for the same things.
Philemon 1:4 - “I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,” 1Timothy 2:1-2 – “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” Luke 9:2 - “And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.” Matthew 18:19-20 - "Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Romans 10:3 - “For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.”
Lord, let Your kingdom come, Your will be done. When my future's in the grave, let Heaven have the final say. Hope deferred makes us weary but I know, God, You hear me. I trust in You; faith will pull me through. I will not be ignorant of Your righteousness … and I’ll keep praying for the same things.
Prayer is our communication tool with God. He will answer in His time and according to His will; sometimes it is 'Yes', sometimes 'No' and sometimes 'Not Now'. It may not be the answer we want or understand, but always the answer we need. Remember, we serve a perfect God Whose ways are higher and Who Loves us more than we know. We see things in the physical realm, He sees things in the spiritual realm. Trust Him! Today’s Song – Watch/Listen: “Praying for the Same Things” – Artist: Evan Craft
