"Heaven is full of answers to prayers for which no one ever bothered to ask."
I read this quote by Billy Graham the other day. It has so affected me that I can't get it out of my head. I can't help wonder how many answers to prayers I haven't asked are there, just waiting for me to speak. James 4:2 NIV tells us, "2...You do not have, because you do not ask God." Ok, so I don't have something because I don't ask for it...thus, Heaven is full of answers to the prayers I don't ask.
It sounds so simple and yet it's so profound. God loves us so much that He already has the answers to our prayers; He's just waiting for us to voice them to Him. I'm greedy when it comes to the things of God! I don't know about you but I want EVERYTHING that He has for me. I don't want one prayer answer left in Heaven because I didn't ask. I don't want one blessing left unclaimed because I was too busy to receive it! God has so much for us but we rarely, if ever, manage to receive it all.
Lord, help me to realize just who I am in You. Help me to seek YOU in all I do. Help me to receive every answer [that you have waiting for me] to every prayer I pray. Help me to pray every prayer for which you already have an answer.
Have a wonderful day, Ladies. Never be afraid to go to our Father in Heaven. He's waiting...
