Did You Ever Wonder ? I have often wondered how come others who are not believers pray and seem to have rapid recoveries from hospital situations . A survey in a number of studies found people who pray seem to have fewer problems in life, less stress and lower blood pressures. Now I am wondering , why ? Who were these people praying to ? Not all prayer is offered to God . Prayer is not the answer - God is the answer. We as believers should not be looking to prayer bur looking to God through prayer . And we can say that prayer is the vehicle by which we reach God. In Acts 12:5...….So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him. We see Peter in prison but “ earnest” prayer was made to God by the church . I think by earnest prayer it was not some flippant “ God undertake to get Peter out of prison” but a prayer with agony . This is the kind of prayer we need to have “ a storm – the – throne – of God “ kind of prayer . When we search for God we will find Him it we search with all our heart. Jeremiah 29: 13 . You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart The idea is not two people praying ( and this is just an example) for a rolls Royce that God will give it to them , but two people are agreeing with the same burden asking God for His will in the matter and agreeing with the Spirit of God and with each other . That is also a very valuable reason why we pray for and with other believers . Questions arising from this thought : How do I feel about praying with passion ? Am I comfortable literally crying out to God and stretching myself toward Him ? And – Do I search for Him with all my heart , or an I a bit reserved ? These are questions I ask myself in pondering today and don’t necessarily have to be answered by others but can be a tool for each of us to ask ourselves .
