However, for many of us, this somewhat imperfect form of prayer lays the initial foundation of our relationship with God.

God wants us to learn something from the experience

Often it is not in our best interest to have an intention granted at a particular point in time.

We can also obtain a deeper understanding by looking at Sacred Scripture. In Mark 8:22-25, Jesus heals a blind man. However, the interesting thing about this miracle is that the man’s sight is not healed instantly.

I believe that one of the most important factors in accepting God’s timing is to look at how He patiently He treats us.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5, KJV).

Pray unceasingly during Advent Ping.

To all,

Grace and peace!! Pray unceasingly all the time. GOD answers in HIS HOLY TIME, which is the right time for us.

Also, people want GOD to heal, grant us something, etc..? But we are healed, we have alot!! We know HIM, believe in Jesus who is victorious, we are waiting for our real home with our real bodies!!

Also, we are alive after sinning so much!! Let’s be more grateful.

Alive!! This is the healing, blessing, and all. Being alive and knowing HIM!! ALLELUIA!!
We ask for too much.
But we ask for things out of fear, doubt, or selfishness in our situation. Believe and receive. GOD knows and handles all.

Matthew 16:25

25 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.

Praise Jesus!!

One of my favorite Gospel parable is the one about the widow and the unjust judge, when her efforts to not give up works and the judge grants her request because she never gave up.
