How long is a long time?

Posted on Posted in devotions

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12, NIV

We all have the prayer list, you know, the one listing of all the most important things we’ve been praying for. Those things that weigh heavily on our hearts, block our thoughts and make us sigh under the pain and sorrow from time to time. Yes, that list. List of our nearest and dearest, our children, friends, spouse, financial situations, health, and future. Some of those things are on that list for years on end, some briefly visit the list and some wretched unfortunate ones come back on the list.

Many of us have asked, pleaded, fasted, made promises, tried to clean up our acts in order to speed up the breakthrough. We have asked for prayer time and time again in church prayer meetings, and we have exhausted our friends by talking about these things through the years.

I want to comfort you my worn out sister, the Lord hears and He cares. He is your Father, and He is the only One who has the last word in this world and in heaven.

Prayer: Dear God, I ask on behalf of all reading this now, that you answer our most deep and old prayers. Lord, please comfort us as we wait for your answer, and if you still say no, I ask you to show us that clearly. Father, most of us are praying for the salvation of our nearest and dearest, Lord please call on them and talk to them, as You talked to us once. Lord, hear our cry! In Jesus name I pray.
