Week after week in GFAÂ’s headquarters, we read letters from people who write to us saying, Â“Would you please pray for this?Â” We get prayer requests from all over, and we take these requests seriously and pray. Later we hear the praise reports: Â“Nobody can explain how it happened, but God answered prayer . . . The money that we needed came in . . . We found the perfect individual to do the work . . . The Lord healed him.Â” All kinds of unbelievable things happen when people pray.
Pray because major events must transpire in our lifetime. God wants things to happen. The workÂ’s forward progress depends on our praying. It really does. Let this sink in. God really answers prayer. As you ask Him, He answers specifically and miraculously. I have seen it so many times.
Prayer is a sure way to see God do mira cles on our behalf. Gideon, Moses, Daniel, Elijah and Paul all prayed, and things hap pened. Jesus prayed before He raised Lazarus from the dead and before He fed the five thousand. The Bible is filled with people praying and things happening in answer to those prayers. Right now God is wait ing to answer the prayers from your lips. Sometimes the answer may take longer in coming, but keep on asking. Keep on seek ing. Keep on knocking. God truly answers prayer.
Pray so that your joy may be full. In John 16:24 Jesus said, Â“Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.Â”
Do you want to be full of joy? Then let God show you some answers to prayer. All of us can testify to the joy of answered prayer.
