Do you want to see your prayers answered?
Whether you are praying for your child to return to the Lord, or for your child to be healed, or for a new job or a new house or a better relationship with your kids or a better marriage… I think that I know the answer to that question. Of course you want what you are praying for to actually happen. We all do.
So what stands in the way between us and the answers we ask for in prayer?
I would suggest that there are one of two reasons why our prayers aren’t be answered:
If we aren’t praying for the right thing, well, we need to get on board with what God wants in our situation. Not what we want. We need to pray His will, not ours. But if we aren’t praying the right way, then we need to learn how to pray. We need to understand our authority as Christ’s followers here on earth.
In the latest episode of CHRISTIAN PARENT/CRAZY WORLD, I discuss where we as Believers naturally excel in prayer, and I uncover the place where we all need to grow. And that place we need to grow can make all the difference. If you want your prayer life to go to the next level, if you want to learn how to pray with authority and receive answers, then be sure to listen. And in the next episode, I will show you how to use that authority to battle for your kids in prayer.
