God is Love:)
Why Prayer Is Disappointing 

Do you ever feel your prayers are not answered? God’s Word gives us the key in James 4:3: “When you ask, you don’t receive because you ask with the wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.” 

The major reason prayer doesn’t seem to work, is we tend to pray with selfish motives. God promises to meet our needs, but needs and wants can be two very different things. So much prayer is focused on how we can use God to get what we want. But the greatest example of prayer is found in Jesus. The night before His crucifixion, He asked his Father to spare Him the agony of the cross, but then added, “yet not My will, but Your will.” 

Prayer is a not a magic tool to get what we want. Prayer is communicating with God—talking and listening so we seek what God wants, asking Him for the strength to do it. Jesus did that, and what a difference it made. #dailyverse #bible #nlt #Matthew #Jesus #God #Prayer #Faith

Too often we view prayer as a time for comfort, reflection, or making our requests known to God. But here Paul urges believers to join in his struggle by means of prayer. Prayer is also a weapon in all believers’ armor as we intercede for others who join in the fight against Satan. Do your prayers reflect that urgency? #dailyverse #bible #nlt #romans #Jesus #God #prayer

Jesus took time to pray. Finding time to pray is not easy, but prayer is the vital link between us and God. Like Jesus, we must break away from others to talk with God, even if we have to get up very early in the morning to do it! #dailyverse #bible #Mark #Jesus #Prayer #Isolate

God is so responsive that you can always reach him. He bends down and listens to your voice. This writer’s love for the Lord had grown because he had experienced answers to his prayers. If you are discouraged, remember that God is near, listening carefully to every prayer and answering each prayer in order to give you his best. #Prayer #dailyverse #bible #psalms #116  (Taken with Instagram)
