"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."
(Philippians 4:6 KJV)
"Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
(Hebrews 4:16 KJV)
There is a time when you are praying that comes to all, if they pray believing and trusting Our Awesome God. It is called a turning point in prayer and it is a time when we are willing to do or accept God's will instead of our own. Usually the prayers that you are personally and passionately involved with are the hardest to turn over to Him and allow Him to do what is best for all involved. This is true even if we believe He knows best, because it often can be agonizing to know that by telling Him to do His will, the answer may mean our loved one goes to heaven.
We need to remember that Jesus Christ knew what would happen before and during His time on the cross and yet He said, "For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me." (John 6:38 KJV) Yes, He knew what was going to happen and how He would die in pain and humiliation. And He knew what God wanted and why. He did God's will! Shall we do less?
We must realize that, as Our Awesome God knew what was best for His Son, He knows what is best for each person we pray for. He is trustworthy and loving. He wants what is best for His creation and adopted children. He taught us faith and love and grace so we know He is pure. God will always do what is beneficial for us, though it may not seem so at the time to us. He can see the whole plan and how it all fits together. He will always love you!
God wants you helping Him to tell others about what He has done for you and can do for them. Come join us as we learn more about Our Awesome God and His Son, Jesus Christ and then put it into action in our community. At our church we believe that Jesus Christ died for you, taking your sins upon Himself and arose the third day to sit by God, interceding for you when you sin. He can be found at our church.
