I can still remember years ago when I didn’t want to go to church even if it’s my birthday. I didn’t have time to pray and I still had a small idea why I had to pray.
As years passed by, I began to realize the power of prayer and eventually I developed it as part of my life especially when I joined Catholic charismatic communities where I met prayerful brothers and sisters.
I now have my prayer time. If you’re confused what this means, it’s simply a private time I spend with the Lord. Usually, I do this in the morning minutes after I wake up. It guides my day and it motivates me to move forward with this life.
During this private time with the Lord, I confess to him all my worries, fears, sins and all my petitions as well as anything I want to share with Him. Sometimes, I’m out of focus but as much as possible I’m trying to make this time as “quality time” with the Lord.
Why I believe that prayers really work every time?
Simply because I have experienced it countless times and for sure will continue to experience them in the future. Sometimes, God answered our prayers in ways we least expect. Remember that God is all-knowing and our wisdom is very small compared to Him.
These are some of my prayers that God answered in His time and will;
He gave me a job here in UAE
He helped me start my own website for my blogs and earn extra income online
He allowed me to support my brother and sisters in their studies
He gave me a chance to serve him in different Catholic charismatic communities
He never allowed me to be transferred back to Dubai
He let me met like-minded people
He blessed me with a loving and supportive family
He blessed me with a supportive and loving girlfriend
He blessed with quality and good friends
He always keep me and my love ones safe and secured
He helped me work on my own dreams and for others
Above all, He gave me this kind of life I’m enjoying now
The list goes on
These are only few of all the blessings and answered prayers the Lord has given to me. If I’ll write them all, maybe they won’t fit here. That’s how gracious the Lord is.
Again, if you’re praying for something for a long time, don’t stop praying. Just continue praying and worshiping Him because at the end of the day, our Lord always answers our prayer. All you have to do is to constantly pray and serve Him in any way you can.
Believe and claim even now that all your prayers and petitions will be answered. Finally, also believe that prayers work every time.
God loves you!
Praying for you,
