Prayer – Look what I’m about to do!

Why does God move the hearts of His people to pray about something specific?
Maybe one reason is that He wants to draw attention to what He’s about to do. After all, He could just do incredible miracles without anyone watching, noticing, or praying in advance. But He takes pleasure in involving humans in His miraculous processes.

Does that make him a showboater? Why would a glorious God feel the need to show off to His created beings? This is similar to the often asked question, “why does God want us to worship Him?”

God doesn’t need our praise, He doesn’t need us to pray in order to perform miracles, and He certainly doesn’t do good things just so that we will notice and applaud. But because of His deep love for us, He wants to bless us. He wants us to experience the beauty, wonder, and glory of His wonderful works, and He knows that when we experience Him, we are the ones who are transformed – we are the ones who benefit.

That’s the same reason why he wants us to pray. God delights in responding to the prayers of His children because he loves to see the wonder and joy on our faces when we realize that we asked for something and God did exactly that. He wants us to know that the gift was from Him, so that we can come back and ask him for more.

Just as Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you.” (John 16:23)

As a growing number of us have been praying for MENA, God is answering a growing number of prayers.

Don’t forget to thank Him for his miracles!

Don’t forget to believe for greater things!

And don’t forget to invite others to pray along with us, and share the blessings of seeing what God is about to do in MENA!
