If you are a believer, you know that prayer is absolutely your one and only choice always, the best armor against all trials.
We can pray in so many ways, we can pray out of joy and gratefulness, we can pray for strength and courage, we can pray to ask for forgiveness. Prayer works to praise God, to just talk to Him, to thank Him, to ask for His help. There is no ONE way to prayer, but prayer is the only way to a peaceful life.
The great thing about prayer is that it is always, without exception, heard and answered. When you pray you are not being ignored, you are not talking to yourself,
We can agree that prayer is wonderful in many ways, but it is also extremely helpful and necessary when you are facing tough moments such like this:
You are living an unknown experience.
You have a decision to make and you don’t know what next step to take.
When you are uncertain about something or someone.
When you feel anxious or afraid.
I was recently experiencing a situation that included all of those feelings at once. I was afraid, uncertain, doubtful, I felt lost without direction, I had no idea what to say, what decision to make, how to feel, what next step to take. I was seriously wondering through life and complaining about it. I felt unsure and I hesitated day by day. I had to take action eventually, but I didn’t know how and where to begin. Thankfully, my sister came to my rescue. She reminded me that prayer is my only solution, that through prayer I would find the answers I needed. Not surprisingly, I did. God answered not once, but several times throughout those days. The thing is that we are very good at asking but we aren’t so good at listening. The fact that you feel that God isn’t talking to you or giving you a response probably means that you aren’t paying enough attention. Or perhaps, you’ve already heard the answer but you consciously or subconsciously decided to ignore it.
God answers in ways we never thought of. His answers can be completely different than what we want, but if you choose to listen and to take action according to His will, you’ll feel more at peace than ever,
It doesn’t matter what you are facing right now, it doesn’t matter if it seems to be no way or no solution, God will provide the wisdom and intelligence for you to make the right decision. Don’t try to solve this by yourself if you are not alone. God wants to help. God knocks on your door day by day, but we are too stubborn and arrogant to listen. Let God in.
The only thing you truly need to do is to get on your knees and pray unceasingly. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
ASK. WAIT. LISTEN. ACT through God, with God, by His side, because of His inspiration, according to His will.
That’s the formula.
That’s the answer.
That’s the way.
