What If What You Are Praying Against Does Not Happen?

Last Updated on

This post is in response to Friday’s post: Islam Rally On Capital Hill – Prayer Alert.

Last Friday I wrote a post about the Islam Rally on Capital Hill. While the event was speculating 50,000 people in attendance, 3,000 people came. The event was peaceful and basically came and went without much fuss. The only real attention from the gathering were reporters attention to the “Christian protesters” causing disturbances.

What do we make of the fact that so little came out of the event? Was the prayer alert premature? Was I making too much out of the event?

Personally, I choose to believe that God answered our prayers. Is it possible that I was making too much out of it? Yes. But what would you rather believe as a Christian: that God answers prayers or that there is no need to pray? We are told not to be anxious in anything but in everything by prayer and petition (Philippians 4:6-7). I mention this because the enemy will even use success in prayer to discourage you from further prayer. God’s ways are not our own. We must choose to believe Him and allow Him to interpret the events of our lives.
