On Prayer

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 NIV

Has your desperate prayer remained unanswered? Have you prayed, yet you seem to get no response or movement?

God’s delay is never due to indifference or preoccupation, or an inability to act. His purpose is to develop your faith in Him and Him alone. To move you along the sanctification continuum until you display His glory. So stop doubting Him. He has heard your prayer, and He knows exactly how and when to answer it. He is always on time.
