Being Christian we are taught to take our worries to Him in prayer.
So, we do that. But now the magic question, how long and how often?
We pray, we believe, we stay silent, we wait-yet nothing happens. I Still have ALS, my health is deteriorating, and I have no relief in sight.
How long must I go on praying?
I'm getting so frustrated. Am I alone in this or have you found yourself in a similar circumstance? Help me God with what I'm supposed to do!
Second, I need a thankful heart as I address the master. But what is a thankful heart
The key to a thankful, worshiping heart is to rely completely on the Lord, trusting that He has nothing but good plans for you. (Easier said than done.)
We are all looking for one thing. The one thing that's very elusive yet important: PEACE
The answer: Until God's peace fills me.
Sometimes, one prayer is all I need to get that peace. Sometimes I have to fall on my knees multiple times a day before the peace fills me. Regardless, I found that praying and asking God for anything does work. Not in the way I expect; however, I get something better: Peace.
If I'm being honest with myself, Peace is all I want and thankfully, God gives it to me supernaturally.
Am I healed of ALS? No, not yet. While I wait for my healing, I am calm and peaceful which really is an answer to my prayers.
How does this affect you? Remember your ultimate goal is peace. Everything you are asking for is a means to that end. So cut out the middle man and get right to the point!
