I had just left my sister-in-law’s house and was driving home thinking about the encouraging and godly conversation we had during Girls’ Night. As my thoughts drifted, I began thinking of another family situation which has been a difficult one.
I decided long ago that when a person or a situation comes into my mind like that, I would stop thinking to pray right then for whatever it was. Therefore when this other family situation came raging into my thoughts, threatening to take away the joy of friendship I had been praising God for moments earlier, I began praying.
My prayers quickly went from, “I don’t know what to do, God,” to “PLEASE SAVE THEM!”
My prayer became one of fervent urgency. I cried aloud to my God, with boldness and strength and pleaded with Him to show His glory and power in their lives.
Then I realized that it was the first time I had prayed about the situation with such passion. As I thought on that, I became convicted that while I prayed about it before, and while I always tried to follow Christ’s leading and pursue righteousness, in my heart I had doubted that He would actually work.
I’m over at Raising Up Stones today sharing a personal story of how God convicted me in my unbelief and how He brought about restoration of my faith for this particular situation. Please head over to Cassandra’s blog and see all that God taught me when I was finally honest & raw before Him.
