Most heavenly and gracious Father, we come before you as humble as we know how Lord to say thank you. Thank you Lord for just allowing us to see another day. Thank you for our health and strength, Lord. We come to you now Lord to ask that you strengthen us in our spiritual life Lord. Keep us oh Lord that we not stray from your word, Lord. Guide us dear Lord so we may be able to lead someone to you. And Father we pray that you strengthen us where we are weak, Lord. If there is an addiction Lord, we pray that you remove it. Remove the taste, the desire, and need for it Lord. Whatever it is, in the name of Jesus we ask that it be removed Lord. We know that it will be done Father, if we trust in you. We do not have the strength to do it alone Lord. We need you Lord. Father we can’t do nothing without your help Lord. I pray Lord that whoever reads this message Lord that it speaks to them Lord, that it help them to see you Lord for who you are. Our Heavenly Father who loves us so dearly with his agape Love. Who loves us Lord without any strings attached. Who loves us for who we are. All these things we pray and ask in your son Jesus name. Amen!

This is one of my archived lessons that I believe need to be re-read by some. God desires for us to commune with Him so we can make it a habit of coming to Him in any and everything. This is done by way of meditation and prayer. Sometimes, our prayers are heard and are in the process of being answered, but because we see no evidence of it, we tend to accuse God of not hearing and answering our prayers. This is such an error on our part, due to our lack of patience and our eagerness to see God work in our favor. We have become so accustomed to things happening fast, such as when we buy McDonalds (those of us who do), Wendy’s and from other fast food restaurants. We have become a people that no longer appreciate the beauty of simply waiting.
The bible states “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law." (Deut 29:29) This simply means, what God has thought proper to reveal, He did, and things which He has not revealed concern not us but Him alone. Just because we do not see evidence of God working in our favor does not mean He is not. When a woman becomes pregnant, there are many processes that are taking place that is absent to the human eye. You have the meiosis and mitosis stages where 23 pair of chromosomes from each parent is forming that beautiful bundle of joy 9 months later. Take for instance the earth. The earth spins at 1,038 miles per hour (if positioned at the equator), yet we go on with our lives and are not affected by it. Try putting a small animal in a round object, and you spin it as fast as you can. I believe that you would bring about that poor animal’s demise. What about our bodies? When we breathe in oxygen, as our heart is pumping blood, the red blood cells carry the oxygen from our lungs and distribute this oxygen all throughout our body. All of these things we do not see, yet we have experienced the results of them.
They’re many other analogies to bring this point home. These were the ones that came to mind, but the concept is the same. Just like the hidden processes I described above, God works in similar form. He does things in decency and in order. No other being on earth or in the heavens is more meticulous than God, and when He is working on answering our prayers, it will be according to His will and His time frame, but to our benefit, hence the phrase, “He may not come when you want Him to, but when He comes, He is right on time.”
God wants us to have faith (Heb 11:6). God wants us to be patient (Ja 1:4). He also wants us to trust him, as it is written, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” (Pr 3:5-6) When you are asking the Father who is spiritual, to work on your behalf, it will be impossible to see things of the spirit with your natural eye. Be patient, and let the hidden process have its way. Amen!
