I tried and TRIED to get pregnant.
I BARELY missed having a procedure that would have left me unable to have children.
But then, even though God delivered me from the procedure, I WASN’T conceiving anyway.
It finally came down to thermometers, timing, months of waiting…and PRAYER.
We TALK About Praying
We might even pray a little bit.
But why do we TOLERATE so much before we finally get SERIOUS about praying about the things that we want to change in our lives???
Sometimes it just takes us a while before we EARNESTLY go to God in prayer.
- Is it easier to take an Advil than to ASK God to take our headache away?
- Is it more convenient to get a second job before praying and ASKING God how to change our financial situation?
- Are we too proud to ASK Him to bring us that spouse or friend that we have been longing for?
- Do we try every fad diet BEFORE we commit our appetite to Him?
Man, these questions are TIGHT…but they are RIGHT!
Nicole, WHY Are You Asking Such Hard Questions?
Because, God tells us to bring EVERYTHING to Him in prayer. He says that we should pray at ALL times.
(Honestly, I don’t. Or I at least delay.)
I don’t want to DELAY God’s answer to my prayers any longer. As long as I’m making a change, I thought I would bring you along with me.
“…The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” James 5:16 (NKJV)
Let’s get the answers we need more quickly by not delaying in earnestly SEEKING Him, His HELP and His POWER.
Will you join me today?
What can I pray for YOU about?
this really ministered to me today. my husband and i lost two babies due to miscarriage 2 years ago, and i have felt robbed ever since. we have not been able to conceive again and it’s my hearts desire to have a child of my own. the odds are stacked against us, i am 42 and he is 48. i don’t want him to be working the rest of his life either to provide for us, but i know he will do whatever to make me happy. please just pray that god will either give us a child or give me peace.
Shannon Kelly, I am praying for you and your husband! It’s terrible to go through a miscarriage. Whatever you need, God is going to give it to you. Nothing is too big for our God. God is going to heal your and your husbands heart. Praying for you!
Good things come to those who ask…speak…reach out to God. Reach to him first! He can’t help if we don’t ask. Seek him first. : )
I have been the same weight for the last 7 years. I keep telling my doctor something is wrong, but they keep recommending different things with the same results. I get on the scale same thing. I just want prayers for my health and weight. There is so much more.
I will be praying for you, Dinah! God has you and your weight in His hands. 🙂
Pastor Nicole, you can be in agreement with me on my eyesight. Both of my retinas are swollen and interfering with my sight. I have already accepted God’s healing so if you would join me in the thankfullness I feel for this blessing we can give God the glory. Thank you for being there for all of us.
Praying right now, Carol! Your eyes are going to get better! God is a healer, and what he did before (miracles), He still does now .:)
That my niece Sloan gets better she was born two weeks early and has been in the hospital since she was born I have been praying for her and my brother and sure enough god answered my prayers Sloan was able to go home three days after she was born. God really did answer my prayers and I am so glad he did because now my brother and sister in law can enjoy their healthy baby girl
That is exciting! Isn’t it amazing how God answers prayers?! Thank you so much for sharing! This is very encouraging!
Please pray for our family. We were set to close on our house today, move out, and the buyers backed out last night. Everything has been boxed up and I am so confused. How could someone do this to us and several other families in the chain. I know this isn’t the worse thing that can happen to someone, but prayers would be so appreciated right now.
Praying for you Amy! God is going to work things out for you & your family. 🙂 Stay strong!
