Do you believe God answers prayer?
That is almost a silly question. I’m a Christian – of course, I believe God answers prayer. Do I believe He answer every prayer? Which prayers will He answer?
The other day I had a man pray for me something very desirable. This man has been very successful in business and has made millions, if not billions, of dollars.
He prayed that I would receive the same grace to make money as he has.
Will God answer this prayer? Did God inspire Him to pray this for me? What is okay to believe God for and what isn’t?
God is able to do immeasurably more than we can think or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). Was this man’s prayer beyond what God has in store for me?
I know I’ve asked a lot of questions. One thing I do know is God has a plan for our lives that is perfect for us. He knows how we are created and what will give us the most life. God responds to prayer because it is a request from His children, a drawing into to Him. As long as we hold Him first in our hearts, there is nothing too great to ask of Him.
Will He grant me the grace to make millions or billions of dollars? Maybe. I know this man released some grace to me to achieve the calling God has on my life. God is good and will use everything to move me towards who He has made me to be. And, that calling will be even greater than I could have ever hoped for. Trust God’s best for you.
