I have seen this video a few times and each time I am brought to tears. It is the story of faith, God’s love, grace, blessings and a miracle. This family talks about the need for their daughter to have a heart transplant and how prayer and God is getting them through it all. God performs miracles every day, and we are blessed by those miracles! God is good, all the time!

“but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer.” Psalm 66:19 (NIV)
“Grow flowers of gratitude in the soil of prayer.” Terri Guillemets
We all have a million things on our plates and that seems to never change. Our prayer lives are constantly filled with new requests. A prayer gets answered and then something else pops up to add to our list. Thankfully our God loves to hear from us and wants us to give him our concerns. He actually wants to hear me ramble on about what is on my mind. Amazing! I can be rather long-winded sometimes, if there is something that is really bugging me I can talk about it for a while and the wonderful thing is, He will listen to every word! I am still trying my best not to make my prayer time a constant list. I want my time with God to be more than the list, I am striving to make my time with Him filled with praise and worship to Him as well. It is definitely something that I am having to be conscious of when praying because it is very easy to get on auto pilot and go back to what I was used to doing and have always done. It really is an amazing change now that I have started to do this though. When I spend my time praising Him after sharing my concerns with Him I have found that to be truly peaceful, the concerns I just shared with Him are not on my mind anymore. It’s awesome how He does that! Please feel free to share your prayer requests with me, there are many things that are on my prayer list but I thought that I would share a few with you:
Both my dad and brother-in-law are in need of jobs.
My husbands grandma had a fall and is now trying to take it easy and reduce stress.
My sister-in-law will be induced a week from today and we are all ready to meet that sweet little boy!
“Hear my cry for help,my King and my God, for to you I pray. In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.” Psalm 5:2-3 (NIV)
“But God has surely listened and has heard my prayer. Praise be to God,who has not rejected my prayer or with held his love from me!” Psalm 66:19-20 (NIV)
Have you ever prayed for something over and over again and felt like you were not being heard? I know that I have felt that way more than once. But, the good news is that we have been heard! God listens to our prayers, even if they seem like words we have repeated over and over. Whenever we pray and give our concerns to God, He will hear every word. He waits for us to give things to Him. It is our part to give it all to Him and then to wait, just like the verse says, expectantly. He will not always give an answer right away, and if you find yourself getting impatient like many of us, it is hard. The way the world is now, phone in hand where we can access all our answers it is so common to want an answer right away. Society may work this way, but God does not. When we pray and give it all to Him we can not expect Him to work according to our time and our plan. When we pray and truly give it all to Him then we need to accept His timing. The answers He gives us may not always be what we want to hear, however He will never leave a prayer unanswered. He hears every word you say to Him and He will answer your prayer, just give Him time! Never stop praying!
