Be of Good Cheer

Prayers slow in being answered?
Oh how this blessed me... 
May our faith in our God be unchangeable as He is.
And remember your prayers, which  are in accordance with God's will, will continue in intercession through the Spirit of our Great God... until they're answered. 
Look how long Jeremiah wept and prayed? And his prayers are still being fulfilled for the nation of Israel.
So it is with ours.
Our prayers are not dependent upon our presence here on earth, but upon our faith at the time which we prayed them. 
Faith is the key. 
God answers them now or in decades or generations to come!
Be of good cheer those loved ones will come home, as surely as my dad did after 54 years of prayer. 
Praise Him. He faileth not.

I'm not great at moment... but our God is, so that's all that matters. LORD bless dear ones, comfort, help  and strengthen you with might in your inner man (for these verses click here).

Oh, precious Shaz, I so needed to read this wonderful post. I so agree that God is unchangeable and always has a plan for us that is perfect and doesn't always "meet" our timetable. Yes, sometimes it will be well past our time here on earth, but He'll answer prayers. Praying for you to feel better. I understand and love your prayers for me (and us). Hugs and love, sweet friend! xoxo

Thank you for being such an encourager Shaz, even when you are not well yourself. I love this perspective on prayer - not one I had really considered before, and it truly is a great way to think of it in the light of eternity, and it makes sense to me. :)
I received a booking for the removal of some sun damaged skin on my nose and upper R arm today - it's next Thursday... so it's a bit of a challenge to find some one to take me - I should be one of the family is currently looking to see if he can get time off for me.

Thank you for this post...yes, it's so often that our prayers are long in being answered. It's so easy for me to become downcast and discouraged, but it also encourages to search our motives and make certain that our prayers are in accordance to His will, and to see whether there is any sin hindering. Here is a link to a hymn that has been an encouragement to me on days like that...I framed it along with the verse from Lamentations 3:25 "The LORD is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him." Thought it might be a blessing to you as well.

He is always good, even when we can't see the outcome, May our faith always be strong in his plan for us!
