What can I pray about for you

Send prayer - wait for an answer

An encouragement from Joyce Meyer | Reading time: 3 minutes

Today I want to tell you something about a promise from God and that is probably one of the most important things I could ever pass on to you. If you learn not only to accept this promise, but also to live with it every day, that could change you completely!

God wants to answer you today and He has more to say than you might expect!

Your health, your finances, your marriage, your family, your job, as well as your life with God, will experience a whole new boost when you recognize:

  • God still speaks today.
    This is no doubt good news, but it gets even better ...
  • God speaks to you.
    And I want you to understand what that means ...
  • You can hear from God!

Yeah, I said you can hear from God. Not only pastors, missionaries, deacons or worship leaders in the church can hear from God, but you too!

Are you listening to god

Today fewer and fewer Christians believe that God can speak to them. Yes, they pray and ask God to speak into their situation. But they just don't know how to hear his voice. This is one of the reasons so many Christians are frustrated. You do not hear God or have not heard him speak in a long time.

And so they assume that they are on their own in their lives and try to cope with their disappointments and problems on their own instead of going to God and asking him what they should do now.

If you know what I am talking about - when you are struggling with frustration or disappointment - I would like to encourage you with a truth from God's Word: God is with you You don't have to go through life alone. God has a better plan for you!

You can talk to God about anything - and count on his answer. In Jeremiah 33: 3 we read of this promise:

Call me, then I will answer you and show you great and unbelievable things that you have never heard of.

The Bible: Jeremiah 33.3

Isn't that a wonderful promise? God promises you that he will answer you and show you tremendous and incredible things when you call to him!

Come closer to God

You don't have to spend another day in perplexity, insecurity or feeling like you're on your own! God wants to bring hope and strength into your life. He will answer you when you call to him!

You may be in a situation that you need help with:

  • You may have to make a serious decision that affects your children, grandchildren, or other family members.
  • You may need healing from a past injury.
  • You may need wisdom to deal appropriately with a difficult situation or the courage to face a problem.

Whatever it is, God has the answer you need and He wants to give it to you. All you need to do is call out to him and believe that he really wants to answer you. God loves you and that is why he is interested in all areas of your life - even the small and seemingly insignificant ones. He is always there when you call to him and he will always give you the guidance and direction you need.

Prayer is not a one-way street

I wish that in my early days as a Christian someone had told me all that I am telling you today. I went to church every Sunday for many years without knowing that God was speaking to his people. I sincerely loved Jesus and did everything I knew was right and good at the time, but I was still frustrated all the time. I wanted to get closer to God, but I didn't know how to do it.

Are you familiar with that? Have you ever wished you were closer to God but always felt like you were walking into an invisible wall? That's what happened to me. My prayer life was like a one-way street. I talked to God, but I didn't listen to him, so my relationship with him was nowhere near what it should have been.

I wanted more from God. But even if I had done nothing but listen to sermons in church or study the Bible, I would not have been able to develop the relationship with the Lord that I wanted so much. I had to talk to him about my past and I had to hear him talk about my future.

 

By reading a lot in God's Word, I eventually learned that God wants to talk to us and that His desire for a close relationship with us is even greater than ours.

Joyce Meyer

Discover God's voice

After realizing this, I rediscovered God. I no longer just talked to him, but learned to hear his voice and obey his guidance and direction. That was an absolute turning point in my life!

And I believe the same thing can happen in your life. If you learn to hear God's voice, your life will change radically. You will have a whole new confidence knowing that you are in the middle of God's plan for your life. I want to help you get the same joy that I found learning to hear God's voice many years ago.

If you have a problem in your family, at work, or in any other area of ​​your life, put it down to God in prayer, no matter how big or small, and discover how you can hear and obey His voice.

Your prayer life was never meant to be a one-way street, and it doesn't have to feel empty and meaningless. God loves you and he speaks to you today.
