Day 36 - June 11, 2012

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:11-13

Do we believe that God is good and answers prayer? Do we believe that God is even listening? Or is prayer for us a religious form devoid of power? Before we answer these questions with the "right" Christian responses, we need to think about whether or not our actions agree with our words.

When you put a 1 year old down for his nap, he yells. He isn't interested in napping and is convinced that his parents hear his every cry. (They sure do!) A baby who is never picked up or responded to will not cry. He will lay in bed and rock himself knowing that there isn't anyone there. Do we lack prayer because we lack hope in God?

God forgive those of us who have lost hope during difficult times and give us the strength and the will to cry out knowing that we have hope in You!

God's peace,

Erin
