Mound Visits, 8/3/17
Do you have dreams, challenges or fears that you need to bring before God in prayer? Are you sometimes reluctant to discuss certain things with God in prayer? In his book “Draw the Circle,” Mark Batterson makes these statements: “Here’s what I know for sure: God won’t answer 100 percent of the prayers we don’t pray. We never know if the answer will be yes, no, or not yet. But the answer isn’t up to us. It’s not our job to answer; it’s our job to ask.”
God doesn’t answer prayer just to give us what we want; God answers prayer to give glory to His name. The greatest tragedy in life is the prayers that go unanswered simply because they go unasked.
In Matthew 7:7 Jesus emphatically tells us to “ask, seek and knock on the door.”
