DID YOU REALLY MEAN TO PRAY FOR THAT?

April 20, 2019

Several years ago I consistently scripture prayed Isaiah 58:5-11 and in that scripture was these words, “And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones.” During this time, I was unsuccessfully dieting and trying to lose weight, and then one day it hit me, God was answering my prayers and making fat my bones. I continued to pray Isaiah 58:5-11; however, I omitted the request to make fat my bones, and I am happy to say I lost weight.

Also, I remember the experience of a young college student who attended my church. She purchased a second-hand car to get her back and forth to college, which was about a 45-minute drive from her home. She prayed and asked God to keep the car working while she attended college, and God answered her prayer, and the day after she graduated, her car died on her.

How many times have you heard people ask God to help them have patience, become fearless, build their faith in Him, or help them love people? Unfortunately, they did not realize that their request may produce painful and unpleasant situations for these emotions and skills to develop?

I am sure that you like me have prayed and asked God for things without seriously thinking about the consequences of your prayers. Knowing God is a prayer answering God, I suggest that we should not make random prayers that sound nice. We should thoughtfully consider what we are about to request, and remember the saying, “Be careful what you ask for” and “Think before you speak.”
