Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Answered Prayers

Why don’t I pray more?

In the past few days, several of my urgent prayers for others have been answered!  A calmed sea (literally!), a health issue, interpersonal relationships, malfunctioning equipment, a heart’s desire.

All these reminders of God’s love, power and wisdom encourage me to keep it up.  Continuing to pray for the same  issues, for new ministries, for friends’ concerns, for my own growth, for a forgiving heart, and so much more.

What happens when I’ve prayed for someone or something in the past but have quit for one reason or another? Do my previous prayers expire like insurance, with no remaining benefit?  Or are they still effective, “stored up” for God to answer in His time?

What do you think?
