Now what did that tell me about prayer?
That prayer doesn’t work? No!
That God isn’t good? No!
That I should give up prayer because I don’t get everything I ask for?
NO. God is not a vending machine, or a genie or a magic wand.
Prayer is not a painkiller that removes all the pain in my life.
Nowhere in the Bible .... has God promised a pain-free life!
Has God said prayer will make every moment of your life easy!
It just doesn’t say that,
So should I give up praying? No!
My job is to keep praying and trust God with the answer
because I KNOW that everything he does in my life is for my good
I ACCEPT a NO, SLOW, GROW, or GO answer
Because I know that God is a Good Good Father
even when I’m in pain.
