“You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.” James 4:2 (NIV)
The sad thing about unanswered prayer is that it is too often unasked prayer. Prayer is God’s chosen means of communication with fallen man and His entrance into our daily lives. He does not force His solutions upon us, but by prayer we allow His answers to solve our problems. He is called our Father in Heaven because He wants to be our provider, sustainer, and the God who answers our prayers.
We serve a living Lord who is in the Heavenly’s as our High Priest forever making intercession for us. Why would we hold back the burdens of our lives when the God who died for our sins lives again to answer our prayers?
Let’s pray today that we may not hold back on daily prayer with our Lord in Heaven.
