God Answers "Little" Prayers Too




Hi!

Someone asked people on twitter to share times when God answered their prayers — so I put something together and posted it as a reply to their request.

I share it here as well, as a thank you to God and an encouragement to anyone else who might read this:

-----------------------------

Recently, I was looking for something I'd seen in one of my books. I spent quite a while going through several that I thought would be likely candidates without success. I started expanding my search to other books without luck. Eventually I started to wonder if I’d seen it in one of MY books or some where else — and was starting to give up finding it here.

So then I did a pretty extensive internet search for what I was looking for.  I’ve gotten pretty good at finding things on-line — but after a lot of effort couldn’t find it there either.

FINALLY, I prayed — a short simple prayer like — “Please God, n the name of Jesus, help me find that” — and then went on to other things.

One day I passed a bookshelf and saw a book — one I had overlooked during all my other
searches. Something said “look in that one” — and of course that’s right where I found it.

Since I’d looked EVERYWHERE I could think of — I knew it was an answer to prayer and have been thanking God for leading me to it ever since.

When I was a kid my mom used to tell a similar story about her father. He was a farmer and lost his pocket watch in a stack of hay one day — he also prayed and asked God to help him find it. 

He reached his arm into the hay and closed his hand and pulled the watch out.

God answers “little” prayers. He answers BIG prayers too!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

May God Richly Bless you! 

Jesus is LORD!

Seek Him!

10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
