Where there Is a Man to Pray, there Is a God to Answer
Just last week my wife and I received a very specific answer to our prayers. She noticed a white spot developing on her iris. Then she started to feel pressure in that eye, and then pain.
Concerned about what may be wrong, she came to me two days later and asked that I pray with her. I did. And then I looked to see if the white spot was still there. It was. We decided to believe God had heard our prayers and gave thanks anyway.
She went through the rest of day feeling the pain and the pressure. And went to bed that night with the white spot still there, admittedly still concerned, thinking she may have to see a doctor the next day. But when she woke up, the first thing she noticed was no pain. She ran to the mirror to see if the white spot was there or not. It wasn’t. It was gone completely. God had answered our prayers, supernaturally!
Listen to what Jesus said:
““Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” (Matthew 7:7-11 NKJV)
In these verses, Jesus pleads with us to pray. In fact, one version translates His plea this way: “Ask, I ask you to ask. Seek, I beseech you to seek. Knock, I urge you to knock.” He is actually begging you to ask because He wants so much to help you. Elsewhere, He says men ought always to pray and not faint.
And do not let the devil deceive you into thinking that God will hear others, but not you. God loves all His children equally. And qualifies all of us the same way–by the blood of Jesus!
Child of God, all you need to get your prayers answered are the love of God and blood of Jesus. And that you have. So pray, believe, and then go on praying. Why? Because where there is a man to pray, there is a God to answer!
