This is not my blog for anything related to spirituality…

but then I’m writing it anyway!

It’s my blog, right?


Just yesterday, I heard the best sermon so far. It’s more of a teaching, though. Why our prayers are not answered. What hinders it:

  • unbelief
  • wrong motive
  • sin

Matthew 21:22 SEE

New International Version (©2011)
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.

James 4:3 SEE

Proverbs 28:9

If anyone turns a deaf ear to my instruction, even their prayers are detestable.

I am so amazed.

The truth just overflows and overwhelms me with joy.

Made me think what applies to me, my life, my family’s.

Nothing is impossible to the Lord God Almighty. We just have to trust Him. Ask Him for his grace and mercy.

He watches. He waits.
