“ . . .The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” (James 5:16).
God listens to Your prayers. So, no matter how long it takes before you see the answer, you must have faith. “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”” (Matthew 17:20).
So remember that God sees your faith in Him and will answer. “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” (John 14:13-14).
Therefore, I want to encourage you all to seek God and pray with God’s will in mind. “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” (1 John 5:14).
So remember James 5:16, “ . . .The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” (James 5:16). And Psalm 145:18-19, “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.” (Psalm 145:18-19).
Heavenly Father, thank You for answering all our prayers and showing Yourself faithful to us. Deliver us all from the evil one and show us Your compassion, mercy, and grace. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
