18 Aug Memory Monday – Week 61
God cares about our desires and prayer requests. He listens to our prayers, moves in response to our prayers, and answers our prayers. It might not always be the answer we had asked for, but He is listening and answering. He doesn’t just want us to ask once and forget about it. He wants to know that we care about what we are praying for just as much as He does. That is why I love Matthew 7:7-8, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
People probably think we are crazy, but we know we have prayed over a thousand prayers for our babies, as well as asked so many to pray with us. We go to healing prayer every other Saturday and we go to altar prayer every Sunday morning. Anytime someone asks if there is a prayer request we are the first to raise our hand. We are going to continue to ask, seek, and knock until He opens the door. We will keep contending for our babies until they are here! Abraham waited 25 years! Such a man of faith who sets a great example for us.
When you desire something, keep asking, regardless if it’s taking longer than you expected. Be persistent. Seek Him. Listen to Him. Wait for Him. Don’t stop believing, hoping, and asking.
