Delayed Prayer

“He may delay because it would not be safe to give us at once what we ask: we are not ready for it. To give ere we could truly receive, would be to destroy the very heart and hope of prayer, to cease to be our Father. The delay itself may work to bring us nearer to our help, to increase the desire, perfect the prayer, and ripen the receptive condition.”

George Macdonald

2. My friend in college told me that God says three things, “Yes,” “Not right now,” and “I have something better for you.” What is God telling you?

One thought on “Delayed Prayer

  1. This past semester I was praying to God to give me strength with everything I did. Lately I have been praying to help me find my path. I feel that God is helping me because he is opening new doors for me and exposing me to new opportunities that are helping me realize I am on the right path.
