God Hears our Prayers

May 17, 2018  |     |   General

     Prayer is a powerful tool the Mission uses on a weekly basis. Whether that means praying for a guest, a donor, or another Mission employee, the Mission PRAYS! So on National Day of Prayer, it was wonderful receiving multiple prayer requests from the community. The Mission strives to be praying for all who need it. 
     There was a prayer request that stuck out to me when sifting through the list of requests. A woman who had recently been diagnosed with MS. She says, “I have days where i’m okay and then days where I have trouble walking, body numbness, vertigo, and other weird symptoms. I just want to be healthy. I hate having to do my life around this.” And as if this wasn’t heart-wrenching enough, she says this, “Sometimes I don’t think God hears me, but I trust He hears others.” 
     I wanted to give this woman a hug, to let her know God hears her cries. But, I cannot do that. So, I will blog and hopefully, by Grace, someone reading this will learn from her story. 
     I want to encourage you today to pray. Even if the situation seems hopeless, to cry out to God regardless. Believe that God can hear your prayers, because He can! If you are ever curious on what to pray, I encourage you to start with the Lord’s prayer: 


Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. They will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. 

     My prayer for you today is a fruitful prayer life. That you come to know and understand a relationship with the Lord is fueled on prayer. That your prayers are about HIM and aligning our minds and hearts with what He is doing, not necessarily just to get what we want. That this brings you closer than ever to your Father in heaven.
