When God’s Answers Take Time

Sometimes we pray for a long time without seeing change. Consider the Israelites and have hope.

They cried for help. God heard, remembered his covenant and knew it was time to act. But first, He appeared to Moses and told him the rescue plan. When Moses went to Egypt, life got harder for the Israelites. Even Moses said, “You have done nothing to rescue them (Exodus 5:23)!” God sent ten plagues, one at a time. The Israelites journeyed to and then through the Red Sea. That was when they finally saw God’s answer to their prayers.*

*Read the whole story in Exodus 1 -15.

A Good Reason to Journal

As I looked through my journal, I read, “My daughter is sick. I don’t know why. Lord, you do! When you were here you healed people from morning to night. You are able to heal her. Are you willing?”

She’s better now. I almost forgot she had been sick.

My journal reminded me to pray, “Thank you, Lord, for healing our daughter! You are the Lord who heals (Exodus 15:26).”

Prayer Has Great Power

You might wonder what value your prayers have. But the Bible says, “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results (James 5:16).”

A wonderful result of earnest prayer that we see is a strong, healthy grandson and a daughter recovering from covid. We are grateful to the many who prayed.

To God alone be the glory!

When People Pray

When we learned she was in labor, we enlisted an army of people to pray for our daughter. She was very sick with Covid.

Her covid symptoms disappeared when she walked into the hospital to have the baby. They came back the next day, but she’s improving steadily and able to care for her sweet baby boy.

The Lord listens when people pray.
