When Covid-19 first started, we all jumped into panic-mode praying—pleading for help and protection to get through this challenging time. Now as almost a year has flown by, sometimes it seems that nothing much has changed. There’s still turmoil and fear and more hard work ahead. Even the prospect of a vaccine is taking so long. Is anyone really listening to our prayers?
I can tell you a definite YES! But you won’t get anywhere just sitting around and waiting for an answer.
Think back on the times when your prayers might have been answered. Then begin noticing how your prayers are being heard. Has a new book been gifted to you that somehow revealed a solution you were praying for? Has a complete stranger recently come into your life and given you much needed guidance? Did you drive by a sign or billboard that offered the exact advice you were seeking?
God moves in mysterious ways. So, it’s best to simply pray and not expect the answer to show up the way you think it should. Remember what your grandmother preached: “You don’t always get what you want; you usually get what you need.”
