the silly prayers

There.  I said it.  I called a prayer “silly.”

But you know the kind I’m talking about.  The kind that when your husband asks you what you’re thinking about… you don’t even want to admit those thoughts running wild through your mind.

But we all know that nothing good comes from a guy asking a woman what she’s thinking about and she answers “nothing.”

I was there today.

It was something my husband and I had already talked about multiple times.  The situation hadn’t changed at all.  I just was struggling in the patience department. I did NOT want to rehash the situation yet again.

So I decided… I’d better pray that silly prayer.

Truth is, I didn’t want to pray that silly prayer because I had been praying about a bunch of other stuff and still had yet to see God move in those specific situations.

He would answer prayers to assure me of his presence, but those mountains weren’t moving.

But I did. I prayed. And though the mountain has yet to move, I can see him at work.  He has strengthened my faith.  I know He’s about to do a great work.

Girls, don’t give up on God.  Don’t think any prayer is to silly to pray to your Father.  He loves you.  He may not be working the situation out the way you want it, but He’s there.  Look for him in the little things.  And wait on him.

He cares about our silly stuff.
