Pray On Demand

IMG_5316Around Christmastime last year, I received a phone call from the daughter of a lady I met while volunteering at a local nursing home. She had a multitude of health issues and as she recounted them, my heart went out to her. She was particularly upset that her medical problems and upcoming treatments would inhibit her ability to travel to Florida to see her Mom for the holidays. As she spoke, God whispered in my ear “Can you pray on demand?” I thought to myself what is praying on demand? How do I process this? This woman felt her prayers to God were unheard and that she was alone in this process she was experiencing. After pondering this thought for a bit, Continue reading “Pray On Demand”

No Blessing for YOU!

NoBlessingWhat happens when we pray for something and God doesn’t seem to respond? It’s an interesting question. Should we say that God is punishing us or He’s not listening to our heart’s desire? In reading Mark 11:24 (KJV), it says “What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them”. No convoluted message there. All we have to do is believe it and we’ll have it. If this is true, why are so many of us seemly in a blessing drought? Continue reading “No Blessing for YOU!”
