Day Three of Fasting and Prayer, Take "Yes" for an Answer

One of the prob­lems with peo­ple are the expec­ta­tions we set for our­selves in things, includ­ing prayer.

Many times we will offer prayers and find our­selves dis­ap­pointed because what we pray for doesn’t come at once.

One must remem­ber not to pray as if you are cast­ing a magic spell because that’s not what it is, nor should we assume that the spe­cific item that we are pray­ing for is God’s will.

Regard­less of our feel­ings, our desires God will use our prayers in the way that most suits his pur­pose and as Jesus taught us to pray “Thine will be done.” not “my will be done.”

So if after today’s final day of prayer you find that the world is still not the world you want it to be don’t lose heart or faith, per­se­vere both in pray and action and take com­fort that when you pray the our father /​the Lord’s Prayer and declare: “Thine will be done”, that request will be granted.

As Chris­tians that should be enough.
