God Always Answers Prayers!

Have you ever heard “Unanswered Prayers” by Garth Brooks?  Of course you have – who hasn’t?  But as famous of a song as that is, there’s one thing that’s a little misleading: when you are praying to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, there is no such thing as unanswered prayers.

What a gift we have – the confidence of being sure that God answers all of our prayers in the best possible way!  Even if that answer is, “No – but trust me…” it is still a good thing for us long-term.  And sometimes he surprises us as he answers our prayers with, “No – and here’s something even better!”

Enjoy discovering a time in David’s life when that is exactly how God answered his prayer!

And here is a prayer for today: 
Faithful Savior, you have redeemed me from sin forever.  You have made me a new creation in your holy image.  Grant that each day, I may rise to do your will as I go about my tasks, for your glory.  Lead me to trust in you above all things as I pray to you, and yield to your holy will.  Encourage me that even when you answer my prayers with a “No” you always have my best spiritual interests in mind.  And help me to rejoice in those times when I notice that you’ve answered my prayers by saying, “No – but here is something even better!”  It’s in your holy name that I pray, Amen.
