I wonder about prayers often. My vision of prayer sometimes is as if your putting a ticket in a bowl with million others prayer to be answered. A feeling sometimes a prayer will never be answered or not as important what other people are asking about. . I could ask God for something but doesn’t it make more sense to answer a prayer from a girl who is hungry? Sure. But then God remembers all those who call upon him.

 

Something else I also wonder. Do you suppose that when we pray, does God allow demons to go against our prayers? If we want things to go right will these demons attack our efforts even which that we prayed to God to help us? Do you feel when we are failing in things that demons are much behind the cause of making things go wrong so we will just give up? And then we will say, well I guess God does not answer prayers. I guess I am on my own.

 

Does then God want us to pray over and over again until God steps in to answer the prayer and to rebuke the demons to stay back from this answered prayer?. . Basically when we pray is there a spiritual battle taking place at the dime to defeat the purpose of what we ask Go?. . I just wonder sometimes because when you pray sometimes things just get worse than better. But in other cases things turned out ok. . it seems there is some kind of battle of testing. What do you think?

Thats funny because just last night I thought the same things. If I ask for something there are certain things that never get answered like to see him again or to be healed or even just simple things like to have help overcoming things I cant on my own. I ask ever night but I have this sense of knowing he wont answer but I refuse to believe it so I fill myself with hope and yet its the same answer every night. It gets to the point where I pray but I feel fear of the same thing happening. I cant do things most Christians can do because the answer is always the same.

 

its almost like I can hear the enemy laughing at me and mocking me because no matter how many times I ask refusing to give up hope God never answers. Last night I had it I told God Im done playing these games I said If I am not supposed to recieve these things then I want him to take the desire to ask for them away, of course he didnt I still want them.I told him prayer isnt supposed to be like this there shouldnt be fear of the same thing happening over and over. Something tells me i cant have these things but scripture says I can and yet I cant.

I dont ask for a miracle I just need to be able to ask anything from him without fear.So many Christians tell me I shouldnt be having these issues. Do you know the power of prayer? Because I dont I have had ppl pray for me I have Prayed exhaustively but nothing. I keep going though, Everynight I ask every night I have hope every night I refuse to believe the enemy but when is enough enough?

1Th 5:15  See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
1Th 5:16  Rejoice evermore.
1Th 5:17  Pray without ceasing.
1Th 5:18  In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1Th 5:19  Quench not the Spirit.
1Th 5:20  Despise not prophesyings.
1Th 5:21  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
1Th 5:22  Abstain from all appearance of evil.
1Th 5:23  And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1Th 5:24  Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

 

God Bless,

Hip

Reminded of the story of job... how he was perfect in Gods sight yet God allowed him to be tempted by Satan..and I don't know if I honestly can say that if it were me.I would pass that test. Everything he owed gone family friends livestock health.its a ruff battle out here in the world.knowing your not truly part of it. Yet job kept on praying kept on praising and kept on proving to everyone especially the enemy, that he was worthy in the eyes of God.

I have had the enemy use my prayers against me,trying to break my faith. But I know that sometimes..most times..its not what we want that we get.its what we need.and sometimes still we have to wait. God knows what we needs and he has this way of working that always seems to be at the last min.when we think we can't take it no more.but just kept waiting and trusting our Lord..and.. BAM! The blessings just over flow and our needs are met.
Its normal for me to feel a little upset when a request is thwarted or on wait. But I still just keep praying and trusting that his timming is best.and that if it be his will.it will happen. I believe strongly in the power of prayer. For it is written that we should pray continualy,with supplications and in good times and bad. And if I'm correct?? Jesus used prayer in everything. To feed the 5,000. To heal the sick,to cast out demons and even to raise lazzurus from the grave. It was all in prayers and complete trust in God,and his will.
We are to pray for one another in agreance.. for where two or more are gathered in agreement it shall be done. If you need someone to pray with I'll be a prayer partner with you. May the Father bless and keep you always.
