An early-morning mist hovers cool and damp just above the fence line and I settle on the back patio…steam swirling from my coffee cup.
I come with a thankful heart for prayers answered - and for the ones still needing a few more stitches here and there until they fit just right.
My praise of Him births a new joy as I consider Mark “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” And I have to ask myself:
Where do I pray from?
A spirit of victory or a heart of defeat?
Do I pray like I know Him? Is there trust behind the words and not just empty requests made of one who expects disappointment?
My heart races and joy sets me on my feet and I’m smiling inside because with my God, I can pray AND believe! I can praise Him WHILE I’m praying because He’s already granted me the peace that surpasses ALL understanding and he’s to be glorified either way! I can praise Him BEFORE the blessing because He IS the blessing!
“For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
