A couple of Sunday’s ago, I was visiting a church and we were praying. Now this was not just one of those short quick prayers. There was a guest pastor and He was leading us in a time of prayer & deliverance for different aspects of our life. So as obvious, I was supposed to be praying with a bit more oomph (as is expected with corporate prayer).
With all honesty, I was not in a good place. I had had a week where I felt like my prayer life was just not there. So like a good Christian girl I stood up along with everybody else and started praying. I opened up to God about my feelings and I got onto praying for what we were all praying about.
What happened next I remember very clearly. After I prayed and before we moved on to pray for the next thing, I thought to myself:
“mehn, I don’t even feel like I’m praying. My prayers are not even getting anywhere. God, I feel rubbish“.
That is exactly what I thought in my mind.
Immediately, one of the kids who was running around with stickers came to me and put a sticker on my shoulder that said “GOOD JOB”
I was like WHAT!!!
Needless to say, I was stood there in amazement with a smile on my face.
It was one of those moments where I just knew that was God.
I had no words except Thank you Lord
And after that, I prayed on with definitely more oomph, now confident and believing that God was actually listening to my prayers.
I want to encourage you, God is always listening to YOU. He hears and listens to the cry of your heart and your spoken and unspoken prayers.
Just like He did with me I believe that He is saying Good Job to you too for holding on to Him and trusting Him.
He loves you.
